    Hi all,

    When I try to rdp to a server using hostname and enter my login credentials, the following error message is as follows:

    The connection cannot be completed because the remote computer that was reached is not the one
    you specified. This could be caused by an outdated entry in the DNS cache. Try using the IP address of the computer
    instead of the name.

    I am able to remote in if I use the ip address of the server.

    On the troublesome server:

    Server has dual NIC but only one is enabled both in network connections and device manager. I have checked both servers responsible for DNS and the A record mapping the particular host name to the ip address is there. There is only one hostname to ip address entry on each server.

    I flushed DNS on the target server already. I am able to ping all DNS servers from the problematic server using both hostname and ip address and vice versa. Time and date on all servers are the same and accurate.

    What could the problem be?
