dns hostname not resolving lan server ¿
Posted on 2009-07-01
strange thing happened this morning:
all of a sudden one of our servers cannot be addressed by its name 'bertha' the hostname resolves to bertha.com.au(or its IP address) (must be a new website created) instead of the servers LAN IP address 192.168.2.3.
we have 2 sites both with a DNS and DHCP server. I check both the forward and revese lookup up zones on the 2 sites and the site not resolving the IP had the PTR entry missing so I added the entry. that didn't help.
Keeping in mind that alll servers have been working untouch for a few years, this new problem arised today for only one server.
What can be wrong for a hostname to resolve to an internet address instead of its LAN address ?
