Have you identified the IP address in the Event data and then checked it with nbstat -n?  That will identify the name that is duplicated.

Once you've found that, you'll have to identify what is using that name.

Did you image any computers or copy any VMs without changing their names?

How were the computers named originally?
What sort of names did they have?  Were they fairly random names or did they make sense?  Do they follow a similar naming scheme as your other computers?

Were the two computers VMs or physical machines?
