    Nslook up and output not expected

    Locked

    by saadelias ·

    At work when I checked ipconfig /all (I have got win2000 server)
    I found that my address (say it is196.230.165.185 )

    I issued the command : ?nslookup 196.230.165.185? ,,,the result was :

    Server: srvgcc04.[b]bb.workshop.ac.uk[/b]
    Address: 196.230.167.208

    Name : ccitip[b]prasadc[/b].bb.workshop.ac.uk
    Address: 196.230.165.185

    [b]bb.workshop.ac.uk[/b] is our domain at work (fake one).

    [b]prasadc[/b] this the username for one of colleague at work,,, Why am I getting this on my PC ?

    I went to my colleague that I am getting his username, and I asked him to check his PC (XP Pro), when he checked his PC he found these information:

    Server: srvgcc04.[b]bb.workshop.ac.uk[/b]——same mine, obvious
    Address: 196.230.167.208

    Name : ccitip[b]iwzaki[/b].bb.workshop.ac.uk——-different form mine
    Address: 196.230.165.186

    iwzaki another different username belong to another colleague!!!

      i think that u r using DHCP with dynamic DNS update. so, the hosts name is registered each time of the individual pc’s.

      you did an NSlookup on 2 different IP’s so you got 2 different returns.

      Have you checked the reverse DNS zones on your DNS server? It could be that old pointer records are not being cleaned up so there may be duplicate entries with multiple hosts associated with the same IP.
