DNS issue in Active Directory
Posted on 2009-07-13
Recently I booted up a new laptop that is part of my AD domain.
The laptop received an ip address of 172.16.8.56. As long as this laptop is in this subnet, I could ping the name of the laptop and get a reply with no problem.
I then moved the laptop to a different subnet (172.16.3.0/24) If I ping the name of the laptop, the name resolves to the old 172.16.8.56 IP address and I receive a request timed out. If I reboot the laptop on the new subnet and try to ping by name, I still get the same result, request timed out result.
It appears that the laptop is not re-registering with DNS when it moves to a different subnet, but Im not sure how to resovle the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
