This issue is probably more likely a networking issue, but since it's related to my WHS, I figured I'd start here...
Recently the boot drive on my MSS EX490 died. I tried a server recovery a couple times, but it never quite worked, so I decided to do a server reset (restore?) and copy my data files back into the drive pool manually. Anyways, when I finished the process I decided to change the name of my MSS so that old mappings and links wouldn't work any more. I wanted to start fresh. The odd thing is that now I can still ping the old server name, and it returns the same IP as the new server name does when I ping it. I've long since removed the entry from my hosts file, rebooted my router, and checked every other machine in the network to make sure there are no other hosts entries for this machine name, but yet it continues to be ping-able. Ordinarily I wouldn't care, except that access to my server has been very slow at times, and I suspect it's because I have this IP address collision going on. but I can't figure out how to remove the old server name entry from my DNS...
One thing I will note is that when I do ping the old server name (it was just "MSS"), I get back a response that shows it is pinging "mss.gateway.2wire.net", which is my UVerse gateway device, which also acts as my router. I have searched through the config software for that router and can't find anywhere where it reserves IP's, and the server name isn't in any of the lists I find in the software. I have rebooted the router as well, but it still resolves.
Any ideas or suggestions for how to get this out of my network?
