An old IP address of a server still populates into Win 2012 DNS server. The new server is up and running and I can ping it. After an hour or so, ping no longer connects because old IP populates into DNS. I have tried deleting the old IP many times. It goes away and everything is fine. After a few hours, the old IP appears back into DNS and communication to new server stops. I have tried flushing DNS many times. Rebooted server many times. Any suggestions?

    Resolved this. Found that the server 2 DHCP address was stuck on another DC. Once I found and deleted that under DHCP management, it no longer appears in DNS table.

    Before we go further, I would like to confirm the following information with you:
    Firstly, is this resource record dynamic or static? If it is a static resource record, I would like to know whether the server is a DC or a member server?

    Best Regards,
