IP conflict.

The system detected an address conflict for IP address 192.168.2.22 with the system having network hardware address 00:14:22:C0:8A:08. Network operations on this system may be disrupted as a result.

I am getting the message from a enduser. How do i resolve this. How do i find which pc is having the mac address 00:14:22:C0:8A:08

Have you tried typing the following from a command (DOS) prompt?

nbtstat -A 192.168.2.22

This should should the machine name, domain and the username that is currently logged in, if a user is logged into the machine

If you have managed switches in your network, you could check that MAC table there and that would tell you which port that machine is on.  If it shouw up on a trunk port then you need to go to the switch on the other end and check there.

You could also try the command nbtstat -c and see if that IP shows up with a name.

Cheers,

Since this machine is in same subnet.

Do this.

When you receive IP conflict message, assign some other IP to this machine.(This will leave other machine with valid IP address).

Now try and use NBTSTAT -A 192.168.2.22.

This will show you machine name, if this is a windows machines.

If this is some device or linux machine, you can port scan it to identify it. Use can port scanner like superscan.
Port scan can tell you what ports are open on the IP address and then you can guess it.

I tried NBTSTAT -A 192.168.2.22. It tells the machine name for the pc that has .22 address. But i really want to find which machine has the Mac address that conflicting with machine.

Try this on your cisco switch

sh mac-address-table dynamic

That should show all MAC's

When you figure out which port its on, unplug it ( or issue an int shut command).  Then, wait for the phone to ring.

You could also try:

PsLoggedOn from: http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/PsTools.html

It will tell you who is logged on and using an IP address.

also as an indirect way would be to send a network message to the IP address using net send with a please call message , if NET SEND wasn't disabled on your network

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/net_send.mspx?mfr=true

or if you have access to the PC in question from the network; you can go to the c drive by

\\192.168.2.22\c$ and look at the Documents and Settings area to determine which user name is there.

my 2 cents,

Check the leases on your DHCP Server, also check the Records of your DNS server.

Both of these should have a record of the MAC addresses that have been registered. It should be easy to find it there.

Alternatively, shutdown the machine that is getting the duplicated IP address...the known one, and then test the IP address and see if the 'other' machine responses...You should then be able to find the device.

By design, if 2 or more conflicting IP addresses are found on your network then only 1 device will work, then networking functionality on the other systems will become disabled. So it won't be visible on your network.
