OS X :: Computer Name Keeps Changing?Aug 13, 2010
Every so often I boot or reboot my computer and the "Computer Name" changes by adding a number 2 to the name, for example my computer at home is called "Dilbert" and when I boot I notice the has changed to "Dilbert (2). When I try to change it back I get a dialog box that tells me "The name of the computer "Dilbert" is already in use on this network. The name has been changed to "Dilbert (2)". To change the name of your computer, open the System Preferences and click Sharing, then type the name in the Computer Name field." BTW, this is the field I am in and attempting to change the name in.
