Although we haven't enabled Kerberos Authentication, we are constantly having some error logs of category KDC which simply says:

"There Are Multiple Accounts With Name..."

What can be the problem? And what shall we do?

PS: We are using Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition.

This usually occurs when a new account (user or machine) is created on 2 DCs at around the same time before replication has had a chance to update all the DCs with the letest version of the database.

Try this:

I have the same probelm but it occurs with an SQL server and would most likely caouse some major problems.  Also ldp gives me the following:

>> Dn: CN=sqluser,CN=Users,DC=mydomain,DC=com
      1> canonicalName: mydomain.com/Users/sqluser;
      1> cn: sqluser;
      1> description: Service Account;
      1> distinguishedName: CN=sqluser,CN=Users,DC=mydomain,DC=com;
      4> objectClass: top; person; organizationalPerson; user;
      1> name: sqluser;
>> Dn: CN=SQLSERVER,OU=BackOffice,DC=mydomain,DC=com
      1> canonicalName: mydomain.com/BackOffice/SQLSERVER;
      1> cn: SQLSERVER;
      1> distinguishedName: CN=SQLSERVER,OU=BackOffice,DC=mydomain,DC=com;
      5> objectClass: top; person; organizationalPerson; user; computer;
      1> name: SQLSERVER;

Any ideas?  I expected to se a duplicate entry for the server name but it's brining up that and a service account on that machine.  Any ideas?
