I have something strange happening here. Users are losing their connection to a server running a license manager for Autocad. When this happens and I ping the license server by name from their workstation I get an ip of 22.214.171.124. It should be 10.1.1.2 since it is set as static on that server. If I flush the DNS cache and do an ipconfig release/renew on the workstations, the license server’s correct ip address shows, and they can open Autocad.
I just tried pinging the backup domain controller from my workstation and I get the same address, 126.96.36.199. Any idea what is causing this? When I look up 188.8.131.52, it shows a company called email@example.com.
We use AD integrated DNS. I checked all internal DNS settings and that 216. address does not show up in forward or reverse lookup zones.
Any idea what is going on here?
