Hi Guys,

Windows 2003 AD domain with Vista desktops.

Tried to ping a pc by hostname and it said it couldn't find the host. So added it to DNS. Checked it was added to both DNS servers.

went back to pc, same answer. Could not find host. This PC is on DHCP and it using the correct DNS servers. Tried pinging from another PC and it found the host and replied but with some per below:

Pinging pcname [fe80::8dce:8af1:1ee8:b387%9] from fe80::88b5:39aa:fff4:f2f4%9 with
 32 bytes of data:

What the hell is going on? Tried pinging on Win 2003 servers and an XP machine, both work fine.
