Testing the DNS server for issues on Windows 2003. I am seeing websites sometime return incorrect ip addresses. Can this be a DNS cache issue? How can I troubleshoot it?

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

To test name resolution use <a href=”http://support.microsoft.com/kb/200525″>nslookup</a>. For clearing DNS cache use the command ipconfig /flushdns command at a command line. See <a href=”http://www.tech-faq.com/how-to-flush-dns.html”>this article for more information on DNS client caching on Windows systems</a>.
