How can I fix "nslookup" irregularities?

I have a computer that I know the IP address of (10.134.236.51) within my network. The computer name is DT-CAM0006. When I perform an "nslookup" on 10.134.236.51 it comes back with DT-CAM0006. However, when I perform the "nslookup" on DT-CAM0006 I get a completely different IP address (10.134.21.2). This is an IP from a scope that is no longer operational. How can I correct  this problem?

Any help would be appreciated.

John

First off you should try "ipconfig -flushdns" in case this is stored in your cache.  If that does nto resolve your issue you have to go to your DNS server and delete the Record pointing to the wrong IP address for DT-CAM0006.

nslookup on the IP uses the records in the Reverse Zone, hence why they would come up differently.
