DNS Not Updating Static Entries

I am running an OES11 SP2 server with Novell DNS and DHCP services. I have added a host to the DNS table (static IP) via the DNS-DHCP module on the server. I then restarted novell-named but doing an nslookup from either the server or end-user desktop on the new host, DNS cannot resolve the name. Same problem after a full serer restart, and after letting DNS sit for a while.

Any ideas?

TIA

Re: DNS Not Updating Static Entries

After letting the server sit for a while, I am now able to resolve the host that was added manually. It would be nice to know if there is a service to restart or cache to flush to force this to occur instead of just waiting for things to settle.

Yes that would be a good idea, and it does refresh fast on my tests.
Which nslookup are you using and does is do a real look up each time to
the server in question or does it pull from local cache?
I use http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/dns_records_viewer.html for such
things as it removes the doubt of if local cache is being used and it
more obvious about which server it is using.
