hey guys, had a question about domain migrations and DNS
we have 2 domains (domaina.com and domainb.com, they are setup with a trust)
to make a long story short, we are migrating all computers from domaina to domainb
the thing is, when we do, domaina still has host records that map the IP of the machine to the old scheme (lets say wks1, as opposed to the new scheme of wks1-ny)
so, we have 2 hostnames, for 1 ip
creating major network issues for programs that use dns (remote admin software, management software, etc)
looks like what we have come up with so far, is that we can run a gpupdate /force on the machines, but this will require the user to re-login, also, we have 200 pcs to do this for... any ideas?
