DHCP DNS issue

I have a machine xxxx when I try to remote or ping it goes to machine yyyy. I look on the DHCP server and the ip address is assigned to yyyy and when I look at the ip for xxxx it has a white exclamation mark on it, which I cant ping. I look on the DNS server and they both have the ip address of yyyy. What could be the problem?

It sounds like you need to implement scavenging on your DNS server.  Here's a lengthy but good article on how to do so:

Stale DNS records. Check link below for some best practices. One was to check to make sure which hosts has correct ip you can use commands like  nbtstat -a IP to confim.

i think u given static ip to xxx  and in your network dhcp is enabled....hence while issuing ip's DHCP issued the same ip to yyy...

so check it properly.....
