We have a internal intranet site that has two Bindings on IIS7.4 http://Workorders
both are bound to the same IP address of 10.0.20.44
We have the host resolved on both DNS and WINS
The Shortcuts on the desktops point to http://workorders
The issue is some computers when they click that shortcut they get a 404 Page Not Found while others do NOT!
If I modify the shortcut to lunch http://workorders.uesorl.com
the 404 error does not occur and the page comes up.
I have verified the IP config of the NIC on the station is pointing to the DNS server and WINS server
A ping to the Workorders resolves to the workorders.uesorl.com fully qualified name with the IP address above.
All computers are running Windows 7 professional and using IPv4 though IPV6 is enabled as well
Any thoughts on why some computers require the fully qualified name while others do not?
