I have a win2000 active directory domain going at the office.  Another guy and myself use a desktop and a laptop on the side.  We each have a single login username.  When we log into the second pc, we get a message that says duplicate name on network. I'm not using roaming profiles in the domain if that matters.  How do I disable that message from showing when you log into the second pc with the same username and password?  500 points for an answer.

Hi madasczik,

The message could also occur if there are two machines with the same name in the network, make sure all you machines have different names. If its an active directory related problem, then iam afraid i can't be of much help :(

Cheers!

This has nothing to do with your user accounts. that message displays when there is more than one computer on the network with the same name.

on the computer getting the message, Right-Click my Computer -> Properties -> network Identification tab -> Properties

Change the computer name from COMPUTERNAME to COMPUTERNAME1 or something like that. You may have to rejoin the machine to the domain as well.

The exact message that comes up is "A duplicate name exists on the network".   Darth_wannabe, yes it does have to do with accounts.  The computers have different names already so that isn't the cause.  Has to be an active directory setting.

Still have the same problem, both comments didn't help but will close it anyway.  Maybe another post will help.
