I am hopping I did not omit anyone hoping.

Shutting down the nscd  solved the problem. Thanks again.
For original problem see bellow

We experiencing a weird problem

Here is a description:

We updating a CNAME record ( for example to point from one IP to
Nsswitch.conf on the machine is set to FILES DNS NIS
DNS updates works successfully.

When you do a nslookup on it will come up with the right IP.
However when you do a traceroute to it goes to the old IP ( the one
we change the CNAME record from).
However there is no entries in the host files for or the 2 IP's. We
double checked there is for sure no entries in the hosts files.
We searched the ARP cash for and there is nothing.
We have no idea why this happens

 IF you change the NSSWITCH order to DNS FILES NIS everything works OK.

Can some one please explain what we are missing.

Will definitely summarize.
