Reinstalling problem - Server name already exists! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm reinstalling Windows Home Server right now and when I got to the screen about naming my server, it says, "server" cannot be used because there's already a computer on the network that's name "server".  So I decided to rename the server to something else but no luck it keeps on giving me the same error.  I even tried naming the server, "asdf" and it wouldn't take and continued to tell me that the name I chose was already taken by a computer on the network.  Has anyone ever seen this problem before?
