I have a Windows 2000 domain with two domain controllers.  The following events have recently started to appear in the event logs of each DC.  I have replaced the actual domain name with *.  Both of the machines have SQL Server 7 installed.

DC1

Source: SAM
Event Type: 1
Event ID: 12292

Description
-------------------------------------------------------------
There are two or more objects that have the same account name attribute in the SAM database. The Distinguished Name of the account is CN=SQLAgentCmdExec,CN=Users,DC=*,DC=co,DC=uk. Please contact your system administrator to have all duplicate accounts deleted, but ensure that the original account remains. For computer accounts, the most recent account should be retained. In all the other cases, the older account should be kept.

DC2

Source: SAM
Event Type: 1
Event ID: 12292

Description
-------------------------------------------------------------
There are two or more objects that have the same account name attribute in the SAM database. The Distinguished Name of the account is CN="SQLAgentCmdExec CNF:d2810346-dd22-48c5-b3bc-be43d9242a68",CN=Users,DC=*,DC=co,DC=uk. Please contact your system administrator to have all duplicate accounts deleted, but ensure that the original account remains. For computer accounts, the most recent account should be retained. In all the other cases, the older account should be kept.

I can only find one account for SQLAgentCmdExec, which I have deleted and recreated it in SQL Enterprise Manager but this has not solved the problem.  I cannot find the account "SQLAgentCmdExec CNF:d2810346-dd22-48c5-b3bc-be43d9242a68" referred to in the message logged on DC2.  I suspect if I could find this account and delete it, my problem would be solved.

Thanks

Please review the following Microsoft Knowledgebase article on finding Duplicate SID's and removing them from AD.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;816099

I would also open Users and Computers, goto View and select Advanced, then right-click on the ROOT domain name "co.uk", select FIND and search on "SQL", look at everything that comes up and make sure that there is no other account that is the same. THe Account Name attribute is not the same as the Display name, so you will have to open the each Account, click on the Accounts tab and view the logon name.
