  • Problems with Netbios after rejoining new clients to the domain

    hi, i have a question here;

    i have successfully added some pc's into a LAN domain (win server2003). after some time one or two pc's were diconnected form the domain and new ones added again. the problem is, i have renamed the new pc's giving them different netbios name but once connected to the local network, the new netbios name on the new pc seem to pick up the IP address of the old pc's IP address which is no longer on the small network. this gives, ocassionally, problems with a user user assigned to that pc to logon.

    please help.

    thank you.

        If you have a domain controller, open DNS goto your zone and make sure that the A records are correct.

          IP addresses are assigned based on the computer's network card MAC address, not based on hostname. Two computers shouldn't be assigned the same IP address by a DHCP server even if they have the same hostname because the MAC addresses will be different. If you're saying that the DHCP server is trying to assign an IP addresses to two machines, then there may be a problem with your DHCP configuration.
