You may also receive the following event in the event log:
Description: There are multiple accounts with name host/SERVERNAME.microsoft.com of type10
To resolve this behavior, use the Ldp.exe tool to determine the location of the duplicate SPN value, and then use the Adsiedit.msc tool to remove the duplicate SPN value. Follow these steps on a Windows 2000-based domain controller:
- Click Start, and then click Run.
- Type ldp, and then click OK.
- Click Connection, click Connect, and then click OK. Leave the Server box blank.
- Click Connection, click Bind, and then click OK. Leave all fields blank.
- Click View, click Tree, and then click OK. Leave the BaseDN window blank.
- Click Browse, and then click Search.
- Set the BaseDN as DC=Home and DC=com, separated by a comma. For example, if the FQDN name of the domain is Mydomain.com, type DC=Mydomain,DC=com.
- Set the filter to the following:serviceprincipalname=Host/computername.home.comFor example, if the relevant computer is named Computer1 and the domain name is Mydomain.com, type the following:serviceprincipalname=Host/Computer1.Mydomain.com
- Set Scope to Subtree, and then click Run.
- After you locate the duplicate SPN, you can use the Adsiedit.msc tool to go to the object, view the duplicate SPN value, and remove the duplicate SPN value.
- Move the server from the domain to a workgroup, delete the server's computer account from the domain, and then join the server to the domain again, using the same computer account.
Only experienced administrators should use these tools because removing the wrong entries in either Ldp.exe or Adsiedit.msc can require reinstallation of the computer.
