I keep getting the error:
There are multiple accounts with name MSSQLSvc/FILE01.CableOrganizer.local:1433 of type DS_SERVICE_PRINCIPAL_NAME.

I followed the instructions at:
and got the following:

dn: CN=FILE01,OU=Domain Controllers,DC=CableOrganizer,DC=local
changetype: add
servicePrincipalName: ldap/file01.CableOrganizer.local/CableOrganizer.local
servicePrincipalName: ldap/file01.CableOrganizer.local
servicePrincipalName: ldap/FILE01
servicePrincipalName: ldap/file01.CableOrganizer.local/CABLEORGANIZER
servicePrincipalName: GC/file01.CableOrganizer.local/CableOrganizer.local
servicePrincipalName: MSSQLSvc/file01.CableOrganizer.local:1155
servicePrincipalName: MSSQLSvc/file01.CableOrganizer.local:1433
servicePrincipalName: MSSQLSvc/file01.CableOrganizer.local:2930
servicePrincipalName: HOST/file01.CableOrganizer.local/CABLEORGANIZER
servicePrincipalName: HOST/file01.CableOrganizer.local/CableOrganizer.local
servicePrincipalName: DNS/file01.CableOrganizer.local
servicePrincipalName: MSSQLSvc/file01.CableOrganizer.local:1149
servicePrincipalName: HOST/FILE01
servicePrincipalName: HOST/file01.CableOrganizer.local

Now i have no idea what system or user i need to delete. I cannot figure out how to decipher this jumble, and the KB article gives no explanation.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
