  • Duplicate computer names

    Hi all

    We seem to be getting some duplicate computer names when creating compters from RIS. Naming convention is a letter + MAC Address. How is that possible that we are getting duplicate names!!!????

    Only about 10 out of 400 or so but odd! And yes i have a list of the computers that are saying it but no duplicates yet.

    Any help?

    Thanks

    Re: Duplicate computer names

    Ok... things are getting quite strange at my place of employment at the moment!!

    We think we have tracked it down to a problem with our internal telephone system. This is only plugged into our network so it can be managed (change extension numbers, caller groups etc...) but event log errors in the offending computers point to the IP address of the phone system stating that it wont give the computer its name... or wont allow it to have it!!! Odd or what!

    We are going to unplug the phone system from the network and see if there is any difference!

    ODD! ODD! ODD!

    PS - We did have a few storms last week which may have caused it to play up... we did have a few non-IT systems go down so maybe...
