Server 2008 is domain controller. Ping one address, get back the address of the pc doing the pinging

Hello,

Have a tape drive at 10.0.0.5 and it is down. So there is nothing at 10.0.0.5. I ping 10.0.0.5 from my pc which is 10.0.0.34 and when I ping 10.0.0.5 I get no response from source...which is correct..but then I get my IP address responding. So I ping 10.0.0.5 and get a response from 10.0.0.34 which is my pc responding. DNS cache? Lookback?

Thanks,

DT

Hey,

Could you please post your ping request? It could also be your machine saying it could not reach 10.0.0.5 and in that error message the originating ip address is also there.

Also, for clearing cache you could use ipconfig /flushdns on the server, this will clear out the local DNS cache.

ipconfig /flushdns did NOT solve the issue. Restarting the DNS server did not solve the issue.
