I have noticed some strange dns resolution recently when pinging from any machine in my domain. If I ping a hostname that is not valid but would be a valid external domain name if you added .co.uk, it will resolve it to an external domain. Eg:
There is no machine in my domain called projects but my network inventory software finds it. If I ping projects, it will resolve to projects.co.uk 184.108.40.206 instead of trying to resolve to projects.[dns domain name]
I have 2 dns servers that are configured to point to themselves first and each other second. Both forward externally to open dns servers 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168. I have also tried forwarding to Unet who provide the lease line and it is the same? Does anyone have any ideas?
