I have a ESX host 5.5 and it is being moved to a different domain.  when modifying the dns settings and applying. it keeps reverting back to an older DNS record.  The host is not even connected to the network.  I did try /etc/init.d/nscd restart and that did not resolve.  We do have the option of reinstalling hyper visor but trying not to.  Any thoughts?

I assume ESXi host, as ESX has not been around for many years!

Have you tried completing this from the console ?

The only reason it could be rolling back as these are invalid changes.
