ip address resolution

Unanswered Question
Jun 7th, 2007


I had configured my 4006 switch with ip address but when i ping with -a to that ip address it's resolving to the hostname which is assigned to the system. But i checked with the system ip address which is using Is there any command to resolve the ip address to host in switch? Please help me to disable this.

I have this problem too.

There is nothing to be done on the switch for that. Basically it happens when the router/switch is assigned an IP which had been earlier assigned to any system.

You need to clear this entry in your DNS to resolve it, mostly a stale entry in the reverse lookup.

HTH, rate if it does
