DNS Issue

I have moved a server from an onsite location to a BO over a BoVPN. When I ping from the main office it resolves to the old IP addressed. I've checked all of the DNS and WINS server and can't find the incorrect entry. What could be causing this problem?

Is the computer you're using configured with a static IP address?  If so, the DNS address may be static as well.  Also, there may be an entry in the hosts file.

Delete the host record for it in the DNS server. Add the new Host record for its new IP. What are you using for a DNS server?

Yes static IP and static DNS. All proper. No entries in hosts files. I already deleted and recreated host and pointer files. MS is handling DNS.

That's all there is, really.  Either DNS, WINS or a static entry (in the IP config or hosts file) is wrong.  Check them all again.  Maybe try from a different computer.

So you have a SBS server?  What version?

Already have done /flushdns numerous times. Server 2003. I did a netdiag /fix and that appears to have fixed, but I'm waiting to see.

If that doesn't fix the problem, gointo the DNS MMC and look for the "A" record for the server name and delete it. You can add an "A" record for the new ip address.

I found a stray WINS entry that the push/pull didn't remove.
