Machine is connected to a domain based network with a Windows 2003 Server.
The PDC is also running DNS.

The workstation in question is the only machine in the network with these symptoms.

There are two machines on the network, named (not really):

From the workstation in question only, if I ping Obama it returns If I ping Palin it returns (???)
If I ping the FQDN of Palin it returns, If I ping -a it returns Palin
If I ping -a it returns Palin (???)

Again, only on one workstation in the network.

It is running WIndows XP 5.1 SP3

I have flushed dns, immediately shut down dns client and rebooted. I have changed multiple settings. I have set up an lmhost file that lists the two machines and had them pre-loaded. Nothing seems to change this. I'm at a point my next move is to uninstall and reinstall tcp/ip.

Interesting stuff but it's driving me nuts. Lots of connectivity issues with this one machine.
