My AIX Admin and telling me his new AIX Server is having an IP address conflict with one of my Windows 2003 servers that has been up for over a year now. We have hundreds of Windows 2003 servers so I confused why his AIX is having an issue with this one windows server.
Here are the details from his AIX log.
