    Someone explain this to me. Ok two things. Using AD Integrated DNS on server 2008 R2 SP1. Domain currently has around 3700 computers. Computer A is on the network and stops working. Needs parts. Computer B is installed and given the same ip address. I look in forward DNS and both are still there. Two different names A and B and same address. I look in reverse and see the it updated. Computer A was removed and B was added.

    I am missing something with forwarding? Is it supposed to update and computer A’s record removed and B only remain when using the same IP. At this time we pretty much use only static addressing here on each client.

    Is this what scavenging would normally clean up, and if so why does reverse update like its supposed to? When I get to a point and can turn scavenging on how does that affect all the clients like servers etc or non windows boxes that are added to DNS. Will it remove all of them and I need to add them all back manually. It’s my understanding I will.

    Thanks
