DNS Server Name Not Resolving - IP works, Name goes to SBS


SBS Server running DNS 200.1.1.210  (hnasbs.local)
Windows 2k3 server using static ip 200.1.1.212 (hnaemr.local)

i noticed that name resolution to the windows 2k3 server was acting funny because i was RDCing from home and when i tried to go to the 2k3 via server name, i was seeing the SBS login screen.  now if i try to ping hnaemr on the network the ip shows that of the SBS server.  WHen i RDC using IP, it goes to the correct machine.  this is SO odd.  any ideas?

are the IP's both EXTERNAL IP addresses?

are these zones replicating each box via secondary zones?  If not it's a good idea to setup zone transfers so both servers have both zones.

On the machine that's not registered correctly start, run, cmd

ipconfig /registerdns

Oh yea, make sure the server that isn't registered correctly is pointing at the correct DNS as well.

Something is resolving hnaemr.local to 200.1.1.210.  Do an nslookup and see what server is providing your name resolution.  Then do queries for each IP and for each name.  I think you have a faulty entry in your DNS.

well, since it was a mission critical system, i had to just remove it from the domain, and reinstall it.  that took care of it, so i'm pretty sure the SBS server was just dishing out some bad DNS info.
