    We have several DNS alias for websites, such as

    PIT.TEST - points to server FQDN

    From XP I can ping pit.test and it resolves correctly to the server but from Vista I cannot. It works only if I use the FQDN of pit.test.domainname. NSLOOKUP returns correct values and resolves correctly. IP settings same on both PC's. Disable firewall, defender just in case.

    Any ideas?
