Hi all,

I am using Windows Server 2003 AD integrated DNS . When a computer fro example PC1 is removed from domain and then add it to domain with different name PC2 . In forward lookup zone , I got two dns host records with same IP address and different names. Some of the application s are not working proporly becuase this IP addresses duplication becuase theapplication got the old name from the DNS.

Can someone please help me how to solve this problem ????

    For a quick fix open the DNS console / Forward lookup zones / select your domain, find the computer name and delete the wrong record.

    Set scavenging of stale records as toniur said.
