I have a computer called abc-cat02. The computer was taken out of the network. I unjoin PC from the domain  and deleted from active directory. A new computer was installed. This computer name is abc-act03. Everything is working exept:

When I ping the old computer "abc-cat02" i get a ping reply. If I tracert i get the same old name.

When I ping the new computer "abc-act03" i get a ping reply with the same ip as the old computer.  If I tracert I get the old computer name "abc-cat02". 

I used angry IP to do a scan on the network. I have multiple issues like: Same Ip address, old host name, new pc name.

Hi Cozminace,

I understand the issue you are trying to resolve, 

Kindly elaborate little bit about your network, what is the network configuration on azure and from the management portal can you still see the abc-cat02 machine in your deployments?
