Hidden DNS Entry?
Posted on 2008-06-17
I have a workstation on my domain that I can ping, remote desktop to and connect to over the network.
If I do an NSLOOKUP, I get the correct IP address back from the domain controller running DNS server.
But if I look in the forward lookup zone and reverse lookup zone of the server, there is no entry corresponding to this ip address or this workstation name!
How does the DNS server know the entry if the entry isn't listed? Is it hidden?
The domain has two controllers, running server 2003, both are DNS servers (the records aren't on either one) and both are WINS servers (there are no corresponding entries in the Active Registrations).
How is this name resolution being done?
