Additional Information

The problem occurs because the Import Service (called by the workstation to locate the new name of its Workstation Object) is reading a different replace to the one updated by ConsoleOne, and replication has not completed. With this fix, the import service will wait for replication to complete if it cannot locate the workstation information.
