RAS problem...

By ajdelo ·
I recently installed an Aztech AZT 4029 modem onto an empty COM port (4) on my PDC and I confirmed that it was set up correctly with Hyperterminal. I then installed RAS successfully (it is running and "Waiting for Call". However, when the server boots up, I get the following error in Event Viewer:

EVENT I 7024
SOURCE: Service Control Manager
DESC: The Messenger Service terminated with server-specific error 2270.

It is my understanding that:
EVENT ID 7024 = The requested operation cannot be completed because the terminal connection is currently busy processing a connect, disconnect, reset, or delete operation.

ERROR 2270 = The computer name could not be added as a message alias. The name may already exist on the network.

I checked RAS and it is running. I checked WINS and noticed that all queries received have failed (although Event Viewer says it's initialized and working correctly).

I tested RAS and was able to connect, however, the server did freeze up after about 5 minutes while trying to get into an Access database.

Has this affected WINS or NetBIOS somehow? I do have a secondary WINS server and it is working correctly and it looks like it may be doing all of the resolution now!?

RAS problem...

by daniel_macnish In reply to RAS problem...

This problem is caused by two computers on the network having the same name, or a computer having the same name as a user. Rename the offending computer (or user) and things should right themselves. You can find the offending computer by using thenbtstat utility from a command prompt. Some useful switches are -c (local names cache) and -r (resolved names) - any duplicates will be listed with type as 'conflict.'

No, that's not it. I only have 10 workstations in my network and I know all of the usernames and NetBIOS names. I didn't have the problem before I installed RAS and when I uninstall it, the problem goes away. Only when RAS is installed do I get the error. I also apply service pack 6a after I install RAS so I know that's not the problem.
