Weird DNS problem on some XP computers?
Posted on 2013-11-14
I've got a weird DNS problem on some of my XP machines some of the time ...
At times their DNS cannot resolve certain hostnames:
Let's say I've got a server called serv1.mycorp.local ... our PCs are then supposed to resolve either serv1.mycorp.local or simply serv1 to the actual IP address of this server.
This works well for most PCs. But some PCs, and it seems they all have Windows XP, have hickups. Right now I've got a PC, for example, who is able to ping serv1 but not serv1.hisnat.local!?
Any ideas what the problem could be?
Thanks a lot!
