Ping - duplicate packet...somebody's printing up packets! error

What gives...does this indicate a duplicate IP somewhere?  I just replaced a managed switch who IP should not be present  and wasnt when I pinged it before adding new switch:

* I44-01:20 # ping 10.73.112.69
Ping(ICMP) 10.73.112.69: 4 packets, 8 data bytes, interval= 1.
16 bytes from 10.73.112.69: icmp_seq=0 ttl=30 time=70291.8 ms
16 bytes from 10.73.112.69: icmp_seq=1 ttl=30 time=69401.8 ms
16 bytes from 10.73.112.69: icmp_seq=2 ttl=30 time=68421.8 ms
16 bytes from 10.73.112.69: icmp_seq=3 ttl=30 time=67421.8 ms
16 bytes from 10.73.112.69: icmp_seq=0 ttl=30 time=150 ms (DUP!)
16 bytes from 10.73.112.69: icmp_seq=1 ttl=30 time=70 ms (DUP!)
16 bytes from 10.73.112.69: icmp_seq=2 ttl=30 time=0 ms
16 bytes from 10.73.112.69: icmp_seq=3 ttl=30 time=0 ms

--- 10.73.112.69 ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 6 packets received, +2 duplicates, -- somebody's printing up packets!
round-trip min/avg/max = 0/34469.6/70291.8 ms

Its basically a fiber connection out gig interface into a another fiber gig interface. 

Thanks

Those PING RTT's in the first 4 packets indicate that there is a device *somewhere* on your network (it may be outside the boundaries of your "default gateway" which is replying to that IP address - 70000 ms (7 seconds!) RTT times indicate it's a long way away, network-wise, too!

Unplug/power down your  new switch and do a traceroute - see where the packet goes and see if it matches what you expect of your local network.

Cheers.

Ping - duplicate packet...somebody's printing up packets! error

Thank you for your resonse, it makes total sense. But...before I install a new managed switch I ping the IP of the range thats available, to see if its responds, it did not....but maybe in the interm of me pinging to when the switch was actually intsalled another device came up with the same IP ( very doubtful, but possible ). Any other possible reason of this do you think?  Sigh, the fun this is

Thanks again
