yeah I do. I think it may have something to do with "Rowmote". Would that sound right. It comes up pretty much daily.Try to re-setup your network in System Preferences > Network
And try to disable/re-enable your sharings in System Preferences > Sharing
Do you have a home LAN/Wifi network, right?
I don't know what this is. However, I can tell you that about half of the macs in our design studio have this problem and we don't have Rowmote installed anywhere.yeah I do. I think it may have something to do with "Rowmote". Would that sound right. It comes up pretty much daily.
Thanks for your help
ahhh ok. To be fair its annoying more than anything. Interesting you say its a DNS issue. I'll take a look at that!I don't know what this is. However, I can tell you that about half of the macs in our design studio have this problem and we don't have Rowmote installed anywhere.
It first occurred around the time that we manually changed the names of all our macs in System Preferences/Sharing/Computer Name:
Our IT support says it is probably a DNS issue, however they have not fixed it after about two years since the first occurrence.
Thanks for bringing this back up as its still happening!Are you connecting to the same network via TWO interfaces? (Like: wireless AND wired) And are both of those interfaces on the same subnet?
I occasionally see the same message you are reporting, typically right after I wake my laptop up. And I've realized that -- when I'm plugged into our office wired LAN, and also leave my wireless on -- I actually have two active interfaces on the same LAN.
Right now "ifconfig" shows my en0 as 10.0.5.44 and en2 as 10.0.5.192. Both interfaces have "netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 10.0.5.255".
I think this explains the periodic message in my case. Bonjour searches for conflicting hostnames when it connects to the local LAN. Problem is, my machine connects *twice*. And the two interfaces do not connect at the same instant in time. So you have a race condition between the two interfaces.
Now that I think I understand why it's happening, I'm lazy enough to live with it. For now.
