my bet is, that your "short" server name is resolved to the same name,
as your "long" server name is.
If you have something like this in your /etc/hosts:
You'll get this error. You actually need:
192.168.10.100 S058002 S058002.DS1.AD.DOMAIN.COM
to make it work. Otherwise you'll get some sort of "twice the same name
- error" from the server - and net reports an error. But that's after
"net" has added the machine account and is trying to set some more
