Vista machine resolves an incorrect IP address


I have experienced a strange problem with my Vista machine and have not seen any articles with this issue. I have a Windows XP machine on the domain and Vista machine that's connected to this network but it's not joined to the domain. When I ping the Vista Business PC( computer name) from XP I get an incorrect Ip address. This IP belongs to another XP machine joined to the domain. When you do a ipconfig on the Vista machine you get the correct ip address of the PC. Both Vista and XP machines are set to obtain IP and DNS addresses automatically. I have never experienced any DNS issues before on my XP PC and it talks to other XP machines on the domain with no problems. Can anyone explain what may cause this?

Are you sure you don't have two computers with the same name? I had some issues with Vista Biz too but after applying the updates everything was working fine. I DID have a problem exactly like what you desribed with Vista but is was on XP. My quick fix was to hard code a non DHCP included IP , subnet & DNS on the client. When I had time to work on it I found that the router had issues (although I also think that the satelite provider itself was part of the problem because I was pinging their NOC routers and getting errors). Anyway, replcing the router did work.
