Okay, I have a server that we will call server1.domainname.com.  This server has one NIC that has a static IP address of 192.xxx.xxx.11 and pings with good response times.

If I tracert 192.xxx.xxx.11 address it returns server1.domainname.com.  So this is correct.

However is if I ping server1.domainname.com, it returns 192.xxx.xxx.114.  If I tracert 192.xxx.xxx.114 it doesn't resolve to any name, just returns the path and times.

If I look at DNS, there isn't anything  listed for 192.xxx.xxx.114 on any DC.  I am having intermittent connectivity problems with our backups and wasn't sure if it was related to this weird IP address.

How do I determine where this x.114 IP address is coming from?
