IP and Hardware Conflict

By jgreer ·
I have a network issue involving a Windows 95 Client and a Windows NT server. I am trying to configure the NIC but it keeps giving me an error that says "The system has detected a conflict for IP 10.1.83.122 with the system having a hardware address00:00:81:06:BA:A4. The interface has been disabled. I have looked on Microsoft's site and still no success and have reinstalled everything. Any idea's?

Yes.

You have another machine on the same network using that ip address most likely.

Either change your ip to an unused address or go over your DHCP settings real well in both the server and workstation dialogues.

This is why I still like to statically map ip's. I have a map on the wall in my office showing every machine and, amoung other things, their ip. This makes troubleshooting a breeze and almost instantaneous. As soon as you find an unused ip, this should go away. :)

There is indeed another computer on the netork with this IP. Try pinging it from another machine (while the 95 client is unplugged) to verify its existence. The hard part is finding it, if you have a large network. This is why DHCP is an administrators best friend. Not to say it is perfect. But as your network grows and changes, DHCP decreases your administrative costs.

From the first six digits of the MAC address, I can tell you that you're probably looking for a router or switch rather than a workstation (00:00:81 is the OUI for Bay Networks). With the full MAC address, the Bay folks could probably tell you the model and type of what you're looking for and that might help reduce the size of the haystack in which the needle is hidden.
