Can Ping Offline PC, NSLOOKUP shows IP Address belongs to Another Online PC
Posted on 2013-12-04
I am sure this is an easy question, but I have been wrestling with it for a few days.
I have an issue where I can ping a Win7 PC that is not powered On and not connected to the network. When I ping the Computername (TEST), I successfully get a reply back with 192.168.1.5
If I perform an NSLookup of 192.168.1.5, I get computername of TESTGOOD and the Address is 192.168.1.5 and this Computer is ON and is on the network.
Is there something wrong with my DNS? Is there a maintenance task/process I should perform when I remove PCs from the network and domain? Any thoughts are welcome.
