    DNS - Issues

    Got a crazy one which someone might understand.

    I have a DNS server which gets updates the Host A records from DHCP in the foward lookup zone, but in the reverse lookup zone I have the same IP with a different name. When i go to ping the IP I get no reply so it is not there like the foward DNS says. So why the erronous reverse lookup.

    I have scavening on and it equals my 8 day lease through DHCP

    Thanks for any help

    Wipe the reverse look up zone's contents and then do a dhcp release/renew and see if "new" records are created correctly.

    I'd have thought scavenging would have helped mind you, but I have seen cases where forward is OK but backwards is erroneous.

    Have you tried manually removing it.

    I don't have a (Windows) DNS server to hand, but I though (perhaps incorrectly) that the reverse lookups where configured manually.

    Is scavenging turned on at the server and zone level?
