I recently took out one of the machine from our network but when I open up the command prompt and ping them I get a reply back.
So i thought it might be an issue with the DNS entry so logged into the DC and deleted the Host record for that computer name.
The computer name is : comp001
Ip adress: 22.214.171.124
but when I perform a PING -a 126.96.36.199 I get a reponse from another machine which is on the N/W.
I am sure that comp001 is out of the N/w because I have it at my desk shutdown and un-plugged but I can still RDP to it using its name but when I log on to the PC and check the actual computer name its of a different machine.
Can anyone tell me what's going on?
after i deleted the Host record for Comp001 I did a ipconfig/flushdns and register but that did not help.
How is it possible that I can still ping the machine name when its no longer on the N/W?
