IP DNS DUPHOSTDEF duplicate host errors?

» close window

The Question is:

Messages are appearing in my operator log warning of "%DNS-E-DUPHOSTDEF,
 duplicate host definition" the list the name and IP address of a device.
 These devices are non-VAX\VMS devices, and can are either routers or hubs.
 What does this mean, in general?
  What will this mean to VAX operation?

The Answer is :

  You appear to have a network name (or network address) collision.
  Please contact the support organization for the vendor that is
  providing the particular IP (DNS) package in use here -- details
  on the package and version, ECO level, and the network configuration
  will be required.
