Im no DNS expert but here is the problem we are having, maybe it's normal but I figured I would ask the experts. We are trying to clean up our AD and we are having problems. for example I can ping a computer name and I get a reply from an IP address but when remote to the ip address the desktop network name is entirely different than what I am looking for. So I go to my DNS server and open the DNS snapin and that IP address has 15 unique computer names associated with that IP address. (server 2003)
I would think there should only be 1 computer name listed that matches that IP address. Is this normal to have many names associated with the same IP address?
what can I do to clean the DNS list up? I'm open to any comment or suggestion and can provide more details if needed.
