Nslookup returns a different machine name for the IP address
Posted on 2010-08-25
I have a utility which is looking at one of the server(abc) and not able to show
those medias under the server(abc) on this utility. When I did : (nslookup IPaddress of server(abc) this utility is looking for).It returned me different name of a machine (Lets say xyz) on domain for this IP.
When I went to DNS the Reverse Look up zone shows this IP address pointting to machine(xyz) and it shows as timestamp: static. when I came to know about this I resereved this IP address for server (abc) which it should be assigned to. But I can't find the machine
(xyz) now, as that was the name used earlier by administrator so this was changed later on. That machine (xyz) or account does not exist anymore. My question is if the reverse loopkup is showing a different machine, Would that mean the machine this utility is looking for is xyz and not abc? Please suggest, the utility is not working because this. Thanks for the help
