DNS changes (5 posts)

    I have recently changed the DNS record for our web site after a primary server failure. I run local DNS servers so I know it is pointing to the secondary server but Fetch still connects to the primary. Does fetch cache DNS? If so where is the file and can I clear it?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Hi Mark,

    No, Fetch does not cache DNS info - so maybe some part of Mac OS is holding on to the info?

    I'd try rebooting the Mac and seeing if that helps, otherwise, you could connect to the server by IP address for the time being.

    Thanks,

    Scott,

    Thanks for the quick reply. I made sure the Mac is resolving the name correctly and rebooted it(this is happening on 7 or 8 machines). Connecting via IP address is working but it is a pain to keep reminding my users to connect to the IP instead of the name. I'll take a closer look and see what I can find. If I figure it out I'll post it.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Deleting the shortcuts and then recreating them fixes the problem. I should have tries that before posting.
