    urgent - name resolving to wrong IP

    I know this is a DNS problem, but it's affecting my new SIMS server

    dunno how, but most clients are picking up a bad IP, and refusing to map to the new server

    I've tried ipconfig /flushdns but that doesn't work - on bothe clients and server. The DNS pointers seem to be correct too

    mapping via IP SIMS gives the error: "invalid login: reason 2"

    Soms machines are working after several re-boots

    What do you have as your record for the server on the DNS server? As this would be the place to check surely?

    Have you checked the machines which are resolving the wrong address for a HOSTS file?

    Re: urgent - name resolving to wrong IP

    looking at WINS THAT has a pointer to the wrong IP - is it correct to just delete the entry? - as I can't seem to edit it??

    Did a scavenge of the WINS database and it seems to be working now - just checking

    Still had a problem with a few local copies of connect.ini pointing to the server name instead of s:\sims - just going to push out the correct version to everyone
