    5. Operating System (XP- 32 bit – SP2 )

        Use this System for add same machine name under second Child Domain. This system having

        computer Name :- poonam12

        IP address is :- 172.16.0.4

        Subnet Mask is :- 255.255.0.0

    Actual :-

    It gives ‘you were not connected because a duplicate name exits on the network.’

    What is the reason? Can't we have duplicate name? What should I do?

    Your suggestions are heartily welcom.
