Hello, I sometimes receive this DNS Event Log that I cannot put my fingers on. The site in question (xp013.itsupport247.net ) does not load and I think I know what it might be, but would like thoughts and opinions from EE.

I was thinking that this is a webpage for XP computers to get updates or something. Now that XP is no longer supported the site may be down and we can no longer connect when a machine is attempting to do so, throwing this DNS Event Warning.
(I fully understand that XP should be phased out so please do not make comments about how I should have upgraded all machines from XP).

Thoughts/ Ideas?

itsupport247.net is a managed services company (I believe its Zenith Infotech).  That event means that you probably either do use them or at one time used them and that one of your computers on the domain still has their monitoring client installed.  The monitoring client is still trying to phone home.

We did have Zenith Infotech software at one point in the past so this must be it - makes total sense... and the events did start around the time we changed over to another solution.

Time to speak to my BDR vendor for more cleanup!
