    The thing I know of for this situation is to check for duplicate IPs in DNS. I see you have checked some information in DNS but it can be more tricky sometimes. How I do this is sort by name then highlight the affected computers name-then while that is highlighted sort by data and scroll to the highlighted row, everytime this happens to me I have 2 sometimes 3 names on the same IP address in DNS. I run into this problem often but it is because DNS hangs on to old records while DHCP hands an IP out to a new connection that is apart of those old DNS records resulting in PrObLeMs. Also if you have more than just the 2 DNS servers mentioned make sure you are checking all of them in case there is replication error preventing you from seeing the problems(we hand out a few DNS servers through DHCP) -If you run a nslookup what server is answering that lookup on these computers.

    Like I said this is what solves this for me- Hope it helps!

    There is one more possible place. Have you checked your hosts file? You might have entered some entries there and forget about them.

    Also did you ipconfig /flushdns on the system you deploy packages from?
