Is HOSTB a separate system?
If you do a nslookup from the appserver w/ the name the server is registered as what does it show ?
What does ‘hostname’ report on the box ?
Yes HOSTB and HOSTA are separate VMs.
From APP Server, if I launch nslookup HOSTA, I receive HOSTA Ip address. Name resolution is ok.
On HostA, hostname return HostA.
If you right click on the host and choose ‘verify’ do the values change ?
No, values do not change. I have also tried an update server property.
is 'hosta' registered w/ the fqdn in bsa or the short name ?
if it's the short name if you do 'ping <alias>' from the appserver does that show the correct ip ?
it could also be that an incorrect lookup is cached - restarting the appserver may help...
can you live browse the target ? (like open the file system)
also - is this system behind a socks proxy ?
Hosta was registered using short name.
From app server ping <alias> return ip address of alias (ie hosta)
Already restarded app server and disabled caching... no change
Yes browsing is working but i am browsing hostb instead of hosta
The system is not behind a socks proxy
From a system w/ nsh access to the target can you run
I found the root cause for all agents ….
Name resolution from my pc was correct but from app server, it was wrong because a local dns zone is defined to permit name resolution during server provisioning and before they join a domain.
Some of the record stay in this zone and app server resolve host form this zone instead of domain zone.
After deleting records and launched update server properties, I have no more conflict.
Thanks (again) for your help
So when you were running the nslookup tests before was that from the appserver ?
It was from appserver but I was misreading the result.
Ah – ok.
