The following object was created on a remote domain controller with an object name that already exists on the local domain controller.

Hi,

Bit confused over an event log entry which has shown up on 2 of my 3 DCs today and google hasn't been any help to me so looking for some help.

In 2x of my 3x DCs (all Windows 2003) I had an event id 1226, source NTDS Replication appear at the same time with the details.

The following object was created on a remote domain controller with an object name that already exists on the local domain controller.


Now the item they refer to is my bosses work laptop, but the thing is he is away on leave this week and has the laptop with him.  He's had the laptop for a good 12 months now so I really dont know what this means?

Any advice?

Hi,

Use the command below in command prompt in server.

dsquery computer -name "computer name"

Computer Name - Your boss laptop.

Check the result, whether it displays 2 computer.

verify the DN from the result and remove or rename temporarily (delete later) to check the log stop.

Regards,
Prem
