Duplicate name exists on the network.

By gdatir ·
I've a NT 4.0 PDC & BDCs. I've mixed win95,98, winnt4.0 & win2k clients. I've DHCP & WINS server configured for name resolution.
Till now all the win2k clients configured with wins to connect to the winnt 4.0 domain. Now since last few days the win2k when they start display an error message "A duplicate name exists on the network" & they cannot Authenticate with the PDC. Due to which they cannot access any network drives. Still internet works properly & outlook email works fine. I've checked for any duplicate names in the network. Can anyone help in this regard ??? Pls. help !!!

Certainly sounds like a name resolution issue.
go to a cmd prompt and run nbtstat with the -R switch. this will reload the cache on the machine.. If you use the -C switch it display the contents of the cache and -c will display the contents of the global cache.
I've seen the same before which used to ooccur internittantly on a network i used to look after and i think we found it to be a netbios resolution issue. Clear the cache on all the W2K machines.. Check you wins & dns database as well.
