I have been given a network share address by my infra team, but it doesn't seem to come up when I address it. The address is supposed to contain code for a project build, which I need.
I have pinged the host but nothing comes up. I think this means that it doesn't exist, and the guys in infra must have misspelled it. They're in a different time zone, and I have five hours where I can't access these files which I need for a production release.
What I'd like to do is grep for the host address, finding all machines on the network with an address similar to the one given. Does anyone know of a tool or script which would facilitate this?
Thanks in advance.
Update: to be exact, this is a Windows network. I use the word Grep in its generic verbal sense. as in, to grep for something meaning some pattern recognition tool. apologies, I didn't really think the question through.
Really what I'm looking for is something like:
nslookup [^servernamestart*] or something like that. Does any such utility exist on Windows? I know it's a long shot...
