Hi

Strangest thing? When I am logged in to the SBS2008 Server and I ping a Client eg. Frontdeskpc it replies in the CMD prompt e.g. 192.168.1.17 If I then ping another PC eg. FrontdeskPC2 it replies with the same IP Address? (for a different machine). If I go the the actual machines, they do not have the same address, they have correctly being assigned an IP from the SBS2008 DHCP Server yet SBS2008 still thinks they have the same IP. This is messing up my RWW, when I try and access a machine remotely, I select the correct PC name, but it then logs me into the wrong machine? As if the Active Directory is not getting updates from the DHCP?  Not sure if this is a DNS Problem. I have tried flushing the DNS Cache, restarting the DNS and DHCP Services to no avail. Not a critical problem, just rather frustrating? Any ideas?

Regards and Thank You

Duzbin.
