 HI everyone,
       This is a strange issue i have on our new deployed domain controller. I run it under test envirment at local site (canada) first and it has ip address (give by DHCP), after everything is ok, I sent it to another city (usa) and change the ip address of it to IP).
       However after one night, my canada clients report they can not ping this server, the dns record still show the ip address on that machine is I tried ipconfig /flushdns to let the client get new address but it is not working. I test it on all our canada dns servers and usa clients, they all can ping it and dns record on them is correct. Only the canada clients can not get the correct dns record.
      all our server is windows 2003. I do not know what else i can try to correct this problem. Please advise a direction.
Thanks a lot
