I'm seeing some things that concern me and I'd like, if possible, to clear them up.
This is a domain-based network with 3 interconnected subnets.
All IP addresses are static and manually entered.
The local DC is the first DNS address in the list and there are 2 more DCs on each DNS list on a workstation.
I'm seeing this:
if I run nbtstat -a 10.10.10.68, I get the workstation name that I expect; call it "A".
If I ping that workstation name, I get 10.10.10.68, the address for "A".
Both as expected.
If I run nslookup, I see the local DC as the server- as expected.
If I enter >server 10.10.10.68
Default Server:"B" the name of another workstation.
Address: The address that I entered for the server 10.10.10.68.
So, these don't match!
We're using GFI Languard and it's reporting that both "A" and "B" are running DNS.
I haven't figured out why that would be.
I haven't figured out what GFI Languard is sensing to report this.
I haven't figure out how to turn off the reported workstation DNS service(?).
I only see the DNS Client running in services on all the workstations.
(All Windows 10 Pro).
Any explanations or suggestions?
