I am getting a 4321 (NETBT) event on a server:

The name "WORKGROUP      :1d" could not be registered on the Interface with IP address The machine with the IP address did not allow the name to be claimed by this machine.

I have been googling it but not able to find anything very useful.  

Please advise if you have some idea/suggestion.
