Windows 2008 R2 nslookup does not resolve ../etc/hosts but ping does
Posted on 2013-01-08
I have a strange problem my server has 2 network one for production the one connect to AD, DNS and other for backup, we use our standard name server-bck, for the server-bck I put only in the c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file not in the DNS server
Strange thing if I ping server-bck it can resolve to the IP, but if I do the nslookup server-bck, it won't resolve anything, but nslookup will resolve anything on our DNS server.
Anyone know the answer?
