While using Microsoft password notification service I
notice this problem; when using the list command it displays three targets
with the same name.  I then attempt
to modify, disable or delete those targets; I get the response targets not
found.

Hi, seems like a collision problem while created 2 objects with same name
and same DN on differents DCs. So the most recently named objects keeps the
original DN attribute, AD renames the remaining duplicates to a name as
"originalRdn#CNF:objectGuid", where CNF is a tag to denote that the object
was renamed due to a name conflict.

In order to resolve this issue u may delete 3 of them, logically, those
which have the CNF tags:êrsonnaly, i will delete all of them and recreate
them with pcnscfg.exe

So open ADUC, go to "System" container (in advanced feature mode of ADUC),
find the "Password Change Notification Service" container, u will see all
your targets created. Delete all of them and recreate them again. Wait
before for the end of replication to take place BEFORE recreatings
targets.
