I have two servers on my DMZ (running Windows 2003). One is our web server and the other is our smtp server. Occasionally we are seeing the following message on our smtp server:
Message=The name "WORKGROUP :1d" could not be registered on the Interface with IP address x.x.x.x.
The machine with the IP address x.x.x.y did not allow the name to be claimed by
After researching this message I've looked and the subnet mask on both servers is correct, the netbios names are fine. The only thing that matches is the workgroup name. I've seen where people discuss disabling WINS or even the browser service.
What is this error? How can I get rid of it?
