  • Hi lauro,


    Thanks for posting here.


    Could you post the description ,Error ID and source of this event here for further investigation?

    Meanwhile , you might like to use TcpView and network monitor utility to verify which application attempts to access the remote computer that no existed:





    Microsoft Network Monitor 3.4

  • Hi,


    1) Try to ping the "Computer1"

    2) If it resolves then check the IP address of the same

    3) Check with netstat -n to show the listening on Computer1 IP address

    4) Check with Net session for opening any session with "Computer1" IP address

    5) Track that IP with the help of network guy

    6) Find the same computer name in AD, DNS and DHCP
