Hi, I have a server that was working fine until today when I had to change the IP address around in the NIC cards and now the domain will not resolve the name of the server, it is only seen with the IP address. How can I get the domain resolve it by the server name again. I have software that is looking for the name of the server.

Thanks you.

Servers are typically statically assigned in DNS and do not automatically update when the IP address changes.  You need to find your DNS server and change the entry for the name of your missing server to point to the new IP address.

I do not have any access to the DNS server. I guess I would have to contact the Corp office.

If that is who has the DNS for your network, then yes.

A reboot SHOULD fix it assuming your administrators permit secure updates of DNS by the systems on the network.  Make sure under the TCP/IP properties, Advanced, DNS tab, you have "Register this connection's address in DNS" checked.  You can force registration (if your DNS servers accept it) by using IPCONFIG /registerdns from the command line.  There COULD be a problem though if the DNS servers still have the old record in which case it would have to be removed (and might be automatically in time).

The command lines were helpful but in the end our main IT office had to fix this issue.
