comment KMS for Office 2013 defaults to old server - DNS is fine
I have done as you say michaelhbt, did this yesterday and by the looks of it today I can activate successfully if I do a /sethst:mercury and then /act. It still shows Europa as the preferred DNS host for KMS though. The Europa server is definitely not making any SVR entries, unless they are hidden from DNS Manager.

comment Pings to internal host returns with external IP address on one AD DC/DNS Server
Hi Daniel, I have removed IPV6 from the 2k8r2 server however doing a NSLookup directly on it still has the same result as above. Found that another DNS server is in play (not setup by me) which did not have the is.com.au Forward Lookup Zone which I believe is the culprit of the posted fault. Have added it and will monitor the results over the next couple of days. No Conditional Forwarders found. Thank you

Ahh, whoops, 300 seconds, to 1200 seconds, not ms. And yes, I recon that all PLCs that are not on their own network (either pure 485 or a PLC only ethernet network) are cursed, but if it is not set up as such, then it makes it very difficult for a server to query it. Mind you, I am all new to this PLC business.<br /> I recon that joeqwerty has it right - it really looks like a unicast flood, now that I know what one is and what to look for.

It does look like unicast flooding, and I have extended the mac age timeout from 300ms to 1200ms to test overnight. Will see how that goes. Cheers

comment Windows server sending constant ARP requests to offline devices
Maybe the problem is elsewhere - lots of testing going on at the moment and this was the one that jumped out at us - it could be those network cards, I will look at that too tomorrow.

comment Windows server sending constant ARP requests to offline devices
Hi Evan, I agree that this dosen't seem to be an excessive amount of traffic and I agree that the PLC would best be on it's own network. The one issue with putting it on it's own network is that I have to wait 4 months until end of production to do so. The problem has only been effecting the PLC for the last 3 days, with it running no worries for at least the last 6 years - that's the bit that confuses me!
