Name resolution on internal netwrok
Posted on 2003-02-21
I have a computer called spanky on my network. Spanky is a laptop that was unplugged from the network this past weekend. When spanky came back on the network, it is showing as a different name when using tracrt to it. for instance, when I tracert spanky I get:
Tracing route to spanky[172.16.40.250]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
1 <10 ms <10 ms <10 ms testdomainmovepc[172.16.40.250]
Now, we use AD servers for our DNS internally. It almost seems like a cache problem on our AD servers, as testdomainmovepc was listed in the DNS with the same IP address as spanky. But, testdomainpc is not anywhere on the network at this point.
Any ideas on how to make spanky look like spany?
