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 ,,,the result was :


Name :
Address: is our domain at work (fake one).

prasadc 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: mine, obvious

Name : form mine

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.
