Visa DNS Lookup
Posted on 2009-02-13
My Windows Vista Enterprise x64 Edition has some weird DNS issues. If I try to connect to a Remote Desktop for example, I punch in machine.domain.com and it comes back straight away saying cannot find server.
I go to a command prompt, type in:
Which works fine, no delay, just performs a DNS lookup straight away, if I then immediately type:
Ping request could not find host machine.domain.com. Please check the name
and try again.
The DNS lookup clearly works because NS Lookup is OK, so why won't Windows bloody lookup the DNS name and do what it's supposed to do ?
Typing ipconfig /flushdns at the command prompt seems to fix it, and it then works properly, but I should not have to do that. This is basic networking Microsoft ?!
