Cache Information

By 3565dal ·
The exchange server recently changed IP address, Most all NT machines seem to ping the netbios name fine. I have 2 machines when you type ping SFEXCH2, the old IP address comes up and then Request Timed Out. Is this cached information on the machinethat can be purged or more to do with WINS. I've tried the NBTSTAT command and also deleted the LMhosts file. DHCP does hand out everything to the machine.

Hi, wins automatically svavenges the database for old entries and deletes them but this is determined by the renewal and extinction setup in the configruation dialog box. You can manually initiate scavenging to see if that is your problem. The help menu under wins is very clear, search under "scavenging." Hope this helps.

Do you mean your exchange server is using DHCP to grab its address?
Why ?
If I were you I'd make my exchange server static to remove any confusion.

Type nbtstat -R it will purge or you can waiting until your wins database replicate its database. It will take more than 5 min. to replicate or you can go to your DHCP server.

You may also want to make sure there is not a local HOSTS file that has an entry for the machine name and the old ip address.
