I'm currently an active participant in the tasks that will ulitmately cost me my job due to a recent acquisition and subsequent restructuring. Our network is 192.168.8.0/24 while the acquiring company's network is 192.168.1.0/24. They're connected by a Cisco 1721 router across a frame relay circuit and have been for one month. I arrived at work this morning to complaints about printing problems. My initial ts revealed ip info that was mostly correct, with the exception of DNS server addresses assigned to the clients...these were the acquiring company's DNS server addresses and not ours. A simple release and renew corrected the problem and gave our clients the correct DNS server on our side. Any ideas about how this may have happened? I'm thinking that maybe the IT folks on the other side changed something or possibly activated a scope on their end, but haven't been able to get much info out of them. Sabotage maybe?
