Possible IP conflict with unknown network adapter....
Posted on 2005-05-06
If I check my IP settings, in Network Connections I receive the following message when I exit.
*** Message on server ****
The IP address 18.104.22.168 you have entered for this network adapter is already assigned to another adapter 'HP ProLiant NC 310F PCI-X Gigabit Server Adapter'. 'HP ProLiant NC 310F PCI-X Gigabit Server Adapter' is hidden from the Network Connections folder because it is not physically in the computer. If the same address is assigned to both adapters and they both become active, only one of them will use this address. This may result in incorrect system configuration.
Do you want to enter a different IP address for this adapter in the list of IP addresses in the Advanced dialog box?
I only have 4 servers that use this Network adapter. I checked each one to validate the correct settings. I also disabled this adapter and pinged the address from a workstation on the LAN and did not get any replies.
In the event viewer I found an error w/ the event id of 4199 from over a month ago that was missed. It gives me a MAC address of the device that tried to use the same IP address 22.214.171.124. I have searched through our LAN and cannot find this MAC? If I am thinking right this is an Intel adapter and should no even be related to the issue above.
