Duplicate GUID on Dell Optiplex GX620
I have never seen this before. We received a replacement motherboard (all in one) for one of our small form factor Optiplex GX620. I deleted the old computer account and began to set up another only to be halted with a duplicate GUID error message. Sure enough there was another machine on the network with exactly the same GUID.
I noted down the number and off I went the relevant computer. Sure enough it is identical. Anyone else had this and is there a way of programming a new GUID on the the NIC?

We contacted the vendors of the mainboard that was in the machine and they sent us a link to download an application that would generate a GUID and flash the board with the new one. We had to do each one since the boards all came with the same GUID meaning we couldn't RIS any machines.
Is that the same thing?

Possibly. The motherboard it clashes with was also a replacement one we had delivered a few weeks back (they're getting quite old now). Was yours Dell too?

Now your asking. I can't remember what make the machine was or what the board was. I do know that it wasn't a Dell. Give them a call though and explain the issue. They may be able to point you in the right direction.
It wasn't just 1 or 2 we had though. It was a whole load. Around 20-25 machines IIRC.
