Duplicate name in Active Directory

Posted on 2007-10-10
Last Modified: 2008-05-31
I just setup a network of 20 computers with 2003 Active Directory.  Why all of a sudden computers are starting to say there are duplicate names for that computer.  Even my one domain controller now says it.

And no, I haven't been trying to join computers with the same name to the domain.  I do have two DC's which are in two geographical locations.

    Are you getting event id 7023?
    1. If A multihomed computer has the WINS Client [TCP/IP] protocol or the NetBEUI protocol enabled on both network adapters.
    2. Multiple Windows Internet Naming Service (WINS) servers are present in the network environment, but replication between them is not configured.
    3. WINS clients are registering with more than one WINS server.

    I'll look into it...  We do have an old WINS server for an old domain that I'm trying to get away from.

    removed the static wins and the error went away.
