RRAS ping

Hello,

I have a W2K with RRAS. I've made a W2k backup DC and a backup RRAS.

The pdc is was't congured by me.

Config>
pdc -> 192.168.1.3 and 172.16.31.101 (clients get 172.16.31.102 - 200)
bdc -> 192.168.1.4 and 172.16.31.201 (clients get 172.168.31.202 - 240)
The problem:
clients connect to pdc. ok. ping pdc it responds 192.168.1.3
clients connect to bdc. ok. ping bdc it responds 172.16.31.201

I really need the bdc to respond to ping witn 192.168.1.4
HOW CAN I DO THAT?
I think it's something with the DNS but I don't know.

Thanks

Isn't it something like the IP with 172 is the primary NIC?  Check the binding order to see if you can change it in there.

If I get a chance I will do the same setup on my RRAS server and see if I get the same response.

A normally configured RRAS should reply 172.16.31.101.

Someone modified the pdc to reply 192.168.1.3.

It doesn't matter why, but I really make to do this change.
