Same as parent folder

Hello,

I'm searching for some clarification on the use of the same as parent folder host (a) records on my DNS. I keep getting networking issues relating to the GPO's whose path is resolved through the DNS.
In my forward lookup zone under the local domain, I keep getting a same name as parent folder host (a) record appearing with a invalid IP address in addition to the correct one. I believe this is the source of my problems but can't understand why it keeps coming back even if I remove it.

I've seen that this forum has previous threads answering questions about the same name as parent folder, and was impressed by the consise answers, and I am hoping the answer to my question would be just as simple.

Will

  1. Your domain name is the same as the website address?

    Domain: company.com
    website: company.com

    Is this what you are referring to?

    How many DNS servers do you have? You may want to check replication on your DNS servers if you keep getting a wrong record appearing.

    With the error you could have mutliple issues going on. Make sure your DC holding the FSMO Infrastructure role is not a GC either.
