    ipconfig -flushdns

    followed by:
    nslookup <YourClusterName> <YourDNSServerName>

    this last one should return a "can't find <ClusterNAme>" from your DNSServerNAme

    The nslookup command was to check if the cluster name was registered on the DNSServer.
    If you run it, it will retur the "resolved" from the DNSserver (now that everything is OK).

    run it with the old Cluster Name, just to make sure .
