Windows Active Directory User Have Two IP when performing NSLookup


  • Hi,

    My environment have two AD. One primary and another one is secondary. When we add new object in the primary then it will replicate to secondary also.

    My First AD is :

    My Second AD is :

    I have one problem here when performing nslookup to certain object at my active directory. Example i have one object user call abc.example.local. When i perform nslookup as below :

    C:\Users\Administrator>nslookup abc
    Server:  svr-dc1.example.local

    Name:    abc.Example.Local

    Server:  svr-dc1.example.local

    Name:    abc.Example.Local

    Both nslookup reply to the same user object althought it was different IP. May i know any reason that can cause on the issue?

    The actually refer to the our printer IP.

  • Could be you've got a stale reverse dns PTR record. Within DNS Manager expand Reverse Lookup Zones and then, assuming you see a list of your 10.11.2.x IP addresses listed check what the record for is currently pointing to, I'd suspect that it is pointing to abc.example.local (there may also be a second entry for the record you would actually expect to see), perhaps reflecting some historical home for that record. If it is there then you can delete the old record.
