hi,

Using NW 6.5 DNS server to host "domain.com" zone. proxy.domain.com is a
CNAME to abc.domain.com, and abc.domain.com is an A record to 10.0.0.1.

On a XP workstation, we can use nslookup and resolve proxy.domain.com to a
CNAME pointing to abc.domain.com, and abc.domain.com points to 10.0.0.1.
However we can ping to abc.domain.com, but cannot ping proxy.domain.com.

We have checked the stupid ones and basic ones, such as ipconfig /dnsflush,
restart named.nlm, etc. What else could we check other than checking our
eyes? :-)

TIA
