You need to supply more information. First what DB2 version and OS are you using? What is the tcpip address and configuration of the machine you are trying to add a connection on? Have you tried using the command line?
go to command window (db2cmd if windows)
db2 catalog tcpip node xxx remote ipaddress server portnumber
where xxx can be any name - ipaddress=ip of db2 server and port is port for instance of db2 server
db2 catalog db dbname at node xxx <<-- replace dbname with real db name
db2 connect to dbname user yyyy using ccc <<-- userid and password
this should work
if not return with errors encountered

The above problem occurs when there is a hostname in the network(two machines with same hostname). So, Discover component cannot resolve the ip address to the hostname. This results in an error window. Is this a probability of the problem... can any one suggest?
Having two computers with the same name is very probably the issue. How is the server going to resolve the name? One time it might get resolved as server a and another as server b. This will most positively cause problems.
The command line gives you better feedback, and you also have the ability to actually pick ALL of the options that are available for for the commands.
