Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Can you do an ipconfig /registerdns? This should register the correct computer name in DNS.

    Hi, Just a question: Are you sure you're talking about the same machine. The DNS registering process is automatic, and must be correct. You are correct. If the DNS do not correspond to the real fqdn of that DC you already have problems and they tend to grow up quickly. If that DC does not host the Certification Authority service for your domain, you should be able to rename it. But for me this is not the best and correct approach. The DNS must reflect the real hostname. If it don't there is a problem in your AD. Please investigate a little further and post back any news. HTH
