IP Conflict

In network settings, on one of my servers if I go in to change the tcp/ip settings when I exit I receive a message stating that a device already has the same ip address.  It also says that the device is not physically on/in this machine and is hidden from this window.  The message also states that I is the same type of network interface and gives the MAC address of the device.  It is different from the one installed in this server.

I would like to find the device on our LAN and change its settings.  How can I find the device by using the MAC address?

I disabled the nic and pinged the address and did not receive a reply.

no a nbtstat -a 192.168.X.X   (enter whatever the IP Address Is that is having a confilict).  It should then report the names of the computers with that address.

that should say "Do a nbtstat -a 192.168.X.X   (enter whatever the IP Address Is that is having a confilict).  It should then report the names of the computers with that address."
