I have a Windows Server machine with DNS set up in the following way:
Zone: home.local Domain: apache A (same as parent) 192.168.2.4 A xml 192.168.2.4
I want to be able to connect to 'apache' and 'xml.apache', and be taken to the same address - however this isn't working. On both the server and another machine, I get the following:
> nslookup apache Server: UnKnown Address: 192.168.2.2 Server: apache.home.local Address: 192.168.2.4 > nslookup xml.apache Server: UnKnown Address: 192.168.2.2 Server: apache.home.local Address: 192.168.2.4
The only difference being the first result is localhost & loopback address on the dns server. Pings do this:
> ping apache Reply from 192.168.2.4 > ping xml.apache Could not find host. > ping xml.apache.home.local Reply from 192.168.2.4
I have tried
net stop dnscache but neither worked. There is nothing untoward in my hosts file.
How can I get this working?
