Duplicate name exists on network.

By asifvirk ·
I have Windows 2k Server with only 2 computers connected to it. Everytime I restart the system, I get a message that "a duplicate name exists on the network". I don't understand why I am getting this message. It is annoying. All the computer names are different. Please reply if anyone has an idea why this is happening.

Lack of information, but you probably have two network cards in your server on the same subnet

Thanks for the idea. I do have 2 cards in this w2k server. but I think that the name is already registered in WINS server already.
