I have create a domain (contoso.com) with 3 computers.  All these are virtual.
One is DC1, domain controller (192.168.70.11)
One is MBRSVR1, member server (192.168.70.20)
One is CLIENT1, client (192.168.70.21)

When I try to ping MBRSVR1 from DC1, I seems to get a wrong IP address for MBRSVR1. Can anyone able to tell me why? I have no idea.
Ping from other computer to each computer, it seems to grap the right address.

Is the DC set up to point to itself for name resolution?

If the DC is pointing to itself for DNS, then also check the hosts file
C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts

Everything in there is comments out by default, but check to make sure there isn't an entry for your server.
