OS X Server Duplicate Serial Bug Fixed

An update to my earlier post on this problem: if you have a Mac running OS X Server 10.5.8 or 10.6 and it has more than one network connection to a subnet, it will see itself when it checks for other servers with the same serial number.

Apple has fixed it for 10.5.8 and 10.6.

Apple fixed this problem in the “Mac OS X Server 10.5.8 Update v.1.1”.

The “Network Registration Update” for 10.6 fixes it.

The 10.6.1 update contains the fix as well.
