I have a computer on the network that when i ping its IP i get different
name returned back. I check DNS and Wins and can not find this weird name
that its returning. Any suggestion.

Ex. I ping -a 192.168.10.1

I get Pinging weird1.domain.local [192.168.10.1] with 32 bytes of data:

the computer name of the machine is computer3.

It is getting weird1.domain.local from the reverse lookup zone, either
modify the existing PTR record or if two PTRs exist with two names delete
the PTR with the incorrect name.

Does this happen from one machine or all machines? If only from one, check
your hosts or lmhosts files.
