Windows DNS Aging and Scavenging

dns_icon

 

Had a big DNS problem today and this article really helped me out very detailed and easy to understand.  I have worked with DHCP and DNS in the past never realized how many setting and options there really were to set.  Was interesting you would ping a PC by name and would come back with the wrong IP.  The problem ended up being a combination of short DHCP leases with a long aging and scavenging time set in DNS.
