Every so often a few XP machines on our network lose the ability to resolve
DNS for domains hosted on our internal DNS servers.
A ping from the XP machine will either not find the host, or will end up
reaching our External DNS servers to resolve (if the domain in question is on
that external server as well for public resolution).
Nslookup does find the correct host and IP address using our internal DNS
ipconfig /flushdns solves this issue at times, other times we have to /renew
to get everything to resolve properly.
Any ideas as to what the root of this problem could be?
Thank you for your time.
