I've mistakenly cloned and rolled out 15 desktops with Windows 2000 pro without running sysprep.  Now I'm getting "The Server could not bind to the transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip because another computer on the network has the same name.  The server could not start".  I suspect that this rolled out desktops have the same SID.  How can I correct this problem without having to reclone these desktops?  Your help is GREATLY appreciated.

Considering the link in the "Accepted Solution" is broken, should that change the status of this question? Obviously the original author's issue is resolved. However I searched the knowledgebase, I get this result as supposedly having the answer, only to find out that it no longer does.

That was left as a challenge to your skills about using the internet:
http://search.microsoft.com/results.aspx?mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US&q=NewSID

Typing 'NewSID' in the search field on that error page seems to be pretty far out, since all links are supposed to work after five years, aren't they?

Commented:
Ok now THAT is strange. The first two times I tried that link, I did NOT get redirected to that microsoft search page. I only got a 404 Page cannot be found. Only after clicking the link that jkr produced, and then going to the original link, did I get to the redirected search page.

Commented:
jkr, Ignoring the borderline disrespectful sarcasm, I do appreciate the additional comment/help with this ; )

There was no border meant, yet it should not have been disrespectful either - just a bit flabbergaste ;o)

Commented:
Yeah I can only guess that you thought I ended up at the same search page as you did after the broken link. No worries though.
