So the powers that be decided we need a IP change, actually a switch replacement decided it for us.
I was able to get every machine up and going happily on the windows 2003 server with XPPro stations network.
I am not able to map a network drive that is on our storage array. When I goto Tools>map network drive> it shows the array properly, but when I try to access it ends up just doing nothing.
I am able to ping the IP and I get a good response: however when I ping the machine name I am getting the old IP address and a message from the gateway stating the destination host is unreachable. All other stations are able to connect just fine, and thier pings show as they should. I am able to map other drives on other parts of the network with no problem. Just between this machine and the array it is not happy
I have updated the "hosts" file, did the whole flushdns and registerdns, the GPresult looks ok, checked DNS on the server and things "appear" to be fine as well. A "NSLOOKUP" tells me it "can't find server name for address X.X.X.X: timed out (it does pull the correct address though). Then of course it defaults to the secondary DC. With the nslookup issue it makes me think it is DNS, but I am not sure what I have not checked or overlooked since the rest of the machines appear to be happy.
Anyone have a clue as to what it could be or what I should try next? I assume it is still associating something with the old configuration somewhere but I am having a hard time figuring this thing out. I appreciate any and all assistance.
