What does the second address mean when I do a NSLOOKUP on my Citrix external URL?

Hello,

I'm troubleshooting my Citrix outside connection and I did a NSLOOKUP for citrix.myrapadocs.com and noticed that I got two addresses that responded. The 12.49.168.67 is correct, but what is the 68.178.232.99. Some of my users see that Citrix is trying to connect to that address and timeout, when it supposed to connect to 12.49.168.67. Anyone have any idea why this is happening?

This is the response I get when i nslookup citrix.myrapadocs.com

C:\Users\JaimeC.RAPA.000>nslookup citrix.myrapadocs.com
Server:  fileserver.rapa.local
Address:  192.168.1.2

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    myrapadocs.com
Addresses:  12.49.168.67
          68.178.232.99
Aliases:  citrix.myrapadocs.com

Thanks,

Looks like you have two A records in DNS.

Go into domaincontrol.com panel and remove the incorrect A record and then flush your DNS cache on your local machine.

I'm using Godaddy. Is that where I need to change/modify settings?

Got it. What errors could have this cause on the client side? Thanks.

Typically none.  The creation of A records in DNS is usually a manual process (unless you've configured your clients to dynamically update DNS, then they'd have to be pointing to the godaddy DNS servers and they'd have to be authorized to make the changes, which is unlikely).  So somebody, at some point, probably created those records for you.  By doing a whois by ip address, I find that  68.178.232.99 is owned by godaddy.  Probably when you registered your domain name, some A records that point to godaddy servers were created automatically and they were never removed.
