  • DNS/DHCP Problem

    Hi All,

    Not sure what is up, but I have a nagging problem on my LAN.

    Basically, I have around 10 PC's and a couple of laptops running on the network.

    They connect via 100mb ethernet, 54mb wireless or via VPN...

    The SBS 2003 box runs the DHCP for the network...

    but basically its got a bit messed up.. take one client as an example...

    GX150.an0key.local

    In the DHCP snap in it says it's IP is 192.168.0.99, and it's actual IP is the same and says assigned by DHCP... so all looks fine...

    However from another client machine, if I ping GX150 or GX150.an0key.local it comes up 192.168.0.7 which is really baffling...

    Any ideas?

    Cheers in advance

    Hello,

    Check you DNS and I prefer that you delete all A records.
    Try flushing the cached DNS entries on the client computer by running the following on the CMD:
    ipconfig /flushdns

    This will clear all LM host entries.

          Was flushing the DNS cache the solution?

          Just incase other people have similar issues.

            I deleted the A records, then flushed the DNS on the clients, and then tried the ping again, and all worked correctly.. so yes the advice above worked..
