Do anyone have any idea on this Windows error?

I have searched the eventid.net webpage and this page http://www.jsiinc.com/SUBG/TIP3000/rh3044.htm, but all the client workstations do have File and Print Sharing turned on and installed. Here's our environment. All of our client computers including the domain controller get their IP addresses from campus. Our domain controller is a NT 4.0 server and all of our client computers are Windows 2000 Pro. Almost every computer got those two error messages except a few servers don't.

Any help and suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Should I assume that this info, does not apply either?

Quote:
You can configure multiple network interface cards (NICs, also called network adapters) in a computer (multihomed) for use on the same network segment, but no two network adapters on the same segment in the computer can use NetBIOS. When you install NetBEUI on a multihomed computer, it violates this restriction.

In one instance the device, \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{C8AFA44C-569D-475F-8366-B6E5F91BD740}) pointed to a VMWare virtual interface. The VMWare interfaces both attempted to use a DCHP server to get IP addresses so they got them on the same segment and as explained above, they conflicted as they tried to register the same NetBIOS name. If you can identify the card by searching the registry for the GUID value (for example for the example above search for C8AFA44C-569D-475F-8366-B6E5F91BD740)
Typically this event is followed by event id 4319 from NetBT suggesting to to use the nbtstat -n command to list the names of conflicting computers. Sometimes, the computer conflicts with itself for the reasons mentioned above (multihomed computer).


Got that from here: http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?even ... rce=server

This seems to be essentially the same problem from NT 3.5.1 Server:

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the response. We don't have a multihome computer server so rules out that possibility. I'm checking with the campus to see if they're the one that have the multihome computer because they're the one that distributes all the ip addresses.
