The NCB is the data. This issue is caused by one of the following: The subnet of the DHCP server is different to the subnet of the addresses it’s putting out and there is no DHCP relay to connect the subnets A firewall is blocking the DHCP requests or a network issue is preventing the DHCP server from connecting to the DHCP client The DHCP server is trying to give out IP addresses from scopes that overlap I have to say that the name specified in the network control block (NCB) is in use on a remote adapter error is probably one of the most unusual errors I’ve ever had to fix.
