DNS Issue

I am not finding an certain A record in Active Directory DNS, however when I ping that A record, I get a response of a former A record. This is after doing a DNS Flush several times. Why is that?

Maybe it's a CNAME record?

check C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file, see if you can find it.

perform an nslookup on the record and if it's WINS, the nslookup will fail...

This was the solution! Both WINS Servers had the entry. After removing from Both, I could not find it with nslookup.

Thanks!
