I'm a programmer who is tasked with handling server support until we can hire a new sysadmin, so bear with me. I'm having a problem, where the DNS records for computer names don't resolve to the correct IP.
For example computer name RODSCOMPUTER's actual IP address (from DHCP in Server 2008 R2, also confirmed on ipconfig) is 192.168.1.111 however when I go on another machine and ping RODSCOMPUTER it resolves to 192.168.1.149. Also when I go to the DNS management console in Server 2008 R2 it shows up as the wrong value.
I take it it's expired, but DNS hasn't caught up - how do I make this stay accurate? It's vital for us in our network as we remote desktop frequently.
