"server Name already exists".

By matthew ·
Novell 5.1 server died, removed it from the tree and the replica. Rebuilding the server but comes up with "server Name already exists". Done an object search and hunted high and low even routing tables, still can't find it.

We've lost two servers that way. Had to rebuild them with a different name. I.e. server_fs1 to fs2. Restored data and they've been working fine since. Make sure your mappings are correct afterwards though.
