SYMPTOMS

When Remote Procedure Call (RPC) listens on a specific network address, the full machine name is returned instead of the network address that you asked to listen.

CAUSE

When you register an RPC endpoint to an interface with the same interface/GUID of a previously-registered endpoint, the newer endpoint mapping overwrites the previous endpoint mapping. The endpoint mapper does not allow two processes to register the same interface.
