I have a network where one machine (ws3) is displaying " A duplicate name has been detected omn the tcp network" and I cannot find any duplicate names for the offending machime. using nbtstat -n.
Now interestingly the ip address the error points to is the master browser server (se1) and I am getting entries in the eventlog that state the Machine (ws3) in is trying to force an election.
Could the duplicate name be master browser?
Furthermore this was happening yesterday with another PC (ws2) at the time I tried a rebbot of the offending machine (ws2) this cleared it off that machine , but at the same time started on this machine (ws3)
