Ok I have 4 servers (2000)
Server1 ,Server2, Server3, Server 4
One pc PC1 running windows XP
I can ping all servers by name ok from PC1 accept Server1.
Server1 comes back with the wrong IP address.
Pinging server1 one from any other PC’s resolves the name/IP  OK
I have checked DNS settings ,Turned TCP/IP off saved then back on.
IPconfig /flusdns & restarted
I have disjoined the domain & removed computer from active directory and re joined
Deleted Host file & lshost file
Nslookup server1 resolves the correct Ip

Were is this incorrect IP address being stored ?

So,
 PING SERVER1
returns the wrong ip address?

What about
 PING SERVER1.DOMAIN.COM (FQDN)
??

If it returns okay with the fqdn, then it's a WINS/Netbios name problem.
And if it's responding from other clients, then it's not at the WINS server.

Try resetting your TCP/IP stack:
 Click Start->Run->CMD <enter>
  at the prompt, type:

    netsh <enter>
    interface reset all  <enter>
    routing reset all  <enter>
    routing <enter>
    dump <enter>
    bye <enter>
    exit <enter>

To reset your windows sockets, download and run the following:

try the hosts / lmhosts file on the xp professional machine
cause
your dns seems to be correctly configured

e.g. nslookup works

so you need to have an entry in the hosts file on the machine which is looked up first for the ip adress

then the wins/dns service is used for name resolution.

What does nbtstat -c show?  This should show your current NBT cache (NetBIOS over TCP/IP).  If ipconfig /flushdns is not working which would be for dns entries maybe you need to flush your WINS/NETBIOS cache.  Try this command to purge and reload the remote cache name table:

nbtstat -R
