Am not hugely experienced when it comes to this, but am really keen to figure this one out.
Am an IT technician and the problem that we're currently experiencing is when I remote desktop to a particular machine using its hostname, I end up being connected to a completely different computer. Now DHCP shows both machines to have different IP addresses and so does the PTR record in DNS, however their A record in DNS shows the Ip addresses to be the same. This is obviously where the problem lies, but not being completely knowledgeable about DNS/DHCP is why I can't figure out how to rectify it, I'm on my way to this area in my MCSE but not quite there yet. Yesterday I had the same problem but remote desktop was taking me to a different machine. So I deleted the DNS A-record of both computers and then today the same machine I'm trying to connect to but a different computer its taking me to.
Any input would be great
