Command Line: DHCP / DNS Resolution issues? Not matching results on returns
Posted on 2013-06-11
Hey guys, wanted to seek out some expert opinions on what could be causing this strange return from pinging a number of device/workstations on my network. The issue is as follows.
I want to ping Bobs PC so I open command prompt and type the following:
It then returns the address 192.168.1.56
I then attempt to resolve the 192.168.1.56 address
Ping -a 192.168.1.56
It then returns computer name Lindas-pc? with the ip address of 192.168.1.56
What can i do to make sure that the dhcp tables are correct? I've tried flushing dns, registering dns. No luck. A bit puzzling and would like an answer to help me sleep at night.
Searched around and couldnt find a similar article related to my issue.
