I have a user that when they get into People Soft it seems they get a message that another computer with the same name is logged in. I checked our LANDesk and there is only one computer with that name. I am thinking PeopleSoft mat have retained the last user logged in but not sure. Any help would be very good.

Hi  millerdog
two thoughts, does this user have remember password and name?
Which browser ?
If you have another browser try logging in from Chrome or internet explorer
Try deleting all cookies in that browser better still all browsers but before doing so please do have a copy of your pass words and accounts.

Easy quick option may well be just to rename the pc then... and see if anything then shows up in dns etc for the old name if that worked if both were somehow joined to AD would be authentication issues of course.

I did rename her laptop yesterday so there should be no conflict now but he says it still shows up? The Browser may be 9.0 which we use but one never knows until I sit behind the wheel and get him away. I am about to go clean his laptop and do a DNS flush to clear any cache. I have run the LANDesk scan to force it to see his laptop and it does. Not sure yet until I go back over. They love calling and want you to hurry but they never get back. Life of a tech. Thanks. I am about to go dig much deeper now.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I flushed his cache and he is using IE Explorer and can work through Citrix. I also renamed his laptop as well so now both laptops have been renamed. The problem still exist. He has opened a ticket with Oracle to look into this since he can work in Citrix this is a backend issue I believe?

It seems it is not the laptop but the Oracle software for PeopleSoft. We have opened a ticket with Oracle so it is now in their hands. I thank all for the help.
