Dns problem with domain sent to a new isp

    I hosted a site temporarily inhouse.
    I moved the site to an outside isp and can access it fine outside the
    company intranet.
    Inside however, I can't reach it because my computer is still looking for it
    at the old IP address.
    I flushed the cache and deleted all entries in the dns servers related to
    the domain but it still looks for the old IP.

    What am I missing?

  2. I have had same issue. There is caching in the dns server and also in the
    ISA server if you have one.

    There may be a more elegant solution, but if you reboot your DNS Server and
    Your computer and your ISA server (if you have one) it should take care of
    it.

    An old WINS entry for the site still hanging around perhaps?

    nope, no mapping in Wins.

    The firewall also is not set to redirect to the old ip. If I set my client
    computer to use external dns servers, I can get to the new site IP. Its
    gotta be something in DNS.

    I'm just throwing stuff out here now. Have you got your forwarders on your
    internal DNS server configured correctly (pointed to your ISP's DNS
    servers)?

    yes. Forwarders configured to use external dns servers and check to NOT use
    recursion.

    You said you're not using ISA server. Well, are you by chance using any
    other type of proxy server?

    As I understand that the DNS recrods for your site are hosted externally.

    1. Allow recursion.
    2. How is your internal lan. Using an AD?
    Is the internal domain name same as your external registerd domain name?

    Have you checked for specific entries to this old IP address in the Hosts
    files on the local machine(s)?

    Have ruled this out by changing the dns settings on the local machine to
    ignore the local dns servers and use the internet dns servers, this allows
    me to connect successfully to the site. Changing back to the local dns
    server causes failure.

    1. allowed recursion on both internal dns servers...restarted both dns
    services...no change.
    2. Using AD. Windows 2k servers mostly, some win2k3. lan is running fine.
    site domain is registered externally not even close to any name used here
    internally. web site removed from the web server, ip address removed from
    the system/site and firewall and no longer a valid IP. no trace of the
    dns/ip or anything to do with the domain anywhere internally as far as I can
    tell.

    Look in your hosts file.
    If it is not in your hosts file verify you don't have a zone for the domain
    that the site is in.

    not in the hosts file. Problem occurs on every domain computer.
    there is no zone for the domain.

    I did fix the problem by only using outside dns servers in the client ip
    settings of the client computer that I need to use to edit the site.
    workaround ok with me.

    thanks, but this one has no answer.

    Since you are running AD, the clients will have to point to the respective
    DC for DNS.
    I would suggest that from one of the clients (pointing it's DNS to your
    internal DNS server)

    1. run nslookup. Does nslookup land on correct internal DNS server? setting
    option d2 do lookup
    for your website. Does it resolve to new IP or old IP? If it resolves to old
    IP post the results here.

    2. Run regedit and give search for the old IP of the web site. If you find
    it in the registry, check in which
    path it is appearing.

    I found that my external DNS servers from qwest were removed and replaced
    with different IP's so recursive querys were not working right.
    Once I changed my external dns servers the correct name was resolved.
    Thanks,
    Rob

    ps. no thanks to qwest for not informing me of service changes!
