Hi all, we have a massive problem on our site, where we have changed the address of the domain controller/dns servers, we have found hundreds of machines on that network still arping for the old addresses, so much that its creating a broadcast storm. Is there any quick fix for this ?

The proper way of doing this is through DNS, your clients should be looking for the DNS name of the server not the IP.


Check your DNS server and see what IPs are resolving for the arp madness hosts and then adjust them.


Otherwise, check to see if there are static etc\hosts entries.


c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
