windows 2008 local DNS not updating

Afternoon,

I have an issue with a single server not updating it's LOCAL dns. On the DNS server it's fine however if I try to ping the server name from the server itself it has the old one.

I've rebooted the server

Done an IPCONFIG / FLUSHDNS

I'm a domain admin

I've checked the A record in DNS and it's fine.

I can't figure this out, any ideas?

Cheers

HI

On the faulthy box, if you run

nslookup
server

What does it state as authorative DNS server? If itself you should change that to the orinial DNS server in networkproperties ipv4 -> advanced.

Yep, done that and it's all fine,

NSlookup even reports back the correct IP address :(

Nevermind found the issue, some moron thought it was a good idea to drop the same bloody servers into the hosts file. However your post helped me with it so I'll give you the points, I'd not have thought about that if it wasn't for your post :

Cheers bro
