DTM Client setup


I am trying to setup a DTM client for network tests. I have two identical
machines that are running Win2003. One machines comes right up but I am
unable to estiblish communications with the other machine (the last recorded
heart beat was days ago). I have tried re-installing the OS and reinstalling
DTM client – each time I have changed to unsafe mode before doing so.

One symptom that I see is that there is a duplicate node created for the
troubled machine. I see it in Job Monitor->Machine Pool. The name is
-Duplicate-#####. This node seems to communicate with the DTM
Controller. Does anyone know why this node is being created?
