Duplicate computer name

Description

The target computer thinks that the name used to connect to it is a duplicate.

Possible Causes

The most common cause of this error is using an alias name to connect to the computer (such as a DNS CNAME).  It's not likely that the computer name is actually a duplicate.

Recommended Fix

Ensure that the name used to connect to the computer is valid.
