Reading Time: < 1 minute

If you are receiving the below error within your event log and want to know if teamed up network cards are causing the problem, follow the instructions below:

Error: The name “DC name       :1d” could not be registered on the Interface with IP address

1) Click start
2) Click run
3) Type cmd and click ok
4) Type nbtstat -n and press enter

Check the server name status. If it shows conflict, access the WINS server and under active sessions > display records, locate the server name and delete the server record.
Next go back to the server and within the command prompt type nbtstat -R. Next restart the server and follow steps 1 to 4 again. The state should now be showing as registered and the above error should no longer appear.
