    Hi again Glenn,

    This is very likely due to duplicate DNS entries with differing IP addresses.  Check and remove any and all entries from DNS for the above node in ALL containers in EVERY zone that show the incorrect IP address.

    To check your event errors as a debug
    go to Administrative tools Event viewer. you can save these, look below view is the export them.
    Then  clear all the logs. By clearing them there will have a clean slate and when you next reboot we will see only errors that occur on boot.

    Then do nothing else but shutdown and restart. Then go stright to Event viewer and at top left panel highlight and r/click "Save log file as" on both Application and System, choose save as .txt and name each application.txt/system.txt  save it load it in word pad copy and paste it back to us.

    As another test, shut down and restart in safe mode. Boot back.
     Do you get the message here.

    You have found the two objects that both have the same  
    ServicePrincipal Name, Remove the Service Principal Name that conflicts from  
    one of the objects. This is a multi-valued attribute, each object can have  
    several Service Principal Names. You can modify this with ADSIEdit and  
    LDP.exe, I think ADSIEdit is the easiest way do to so.

    the cifs there is the common internet file system.
