Today I noticed when pinging dc2 in our environment my client machine(s) receive the IP address of dc1.
It was resolved (for a while) in the above post. In the dns mmc I see an A record for dc2 in the forward lookup zone which was autocreated yesterday and has the ip address of dc1 in it.

Not clear on why this re-occurred, both dc's are Windows Server 2008 standard SP2, dc2 is a virtual server (Citrix).

Was dc2 a clone? Does it have the same MAC address?

Either the Netlogon service or DNS server service will auto register the records even if you manually remove them. Although this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2023004 talks about multi-homed servers you might run thru the check mentioned for DNS

I will double check the mac addresses and the ms link and report back, meanwhile I manually removed the A record and restarted netlogon

I had an issue like this at one point. Depending on your system load, rather than chase bugs, it might be easier to build a DC3 and decommission DC2.

For the local area connection DC2 is using a Citrix XenServer PV Ethernet Adpater, when I checked a different vm it had a Realtek device as the adapter, will need to check the config in XenCenter

I have not done the proposed (yet) but I think it will be the best solution going forward.
