Issue

Unable to create a new i2/b3 Device object. Getting an error "Cannot set the handle. Duplicate Infinet Id and comm port" when trying to create a new Device object.

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

Continuum i2xxx and b3xxx controllers.

Cause

The error is seen when trying to create a Device object with an Id that already exists on the network or in the Database.

Resolution

1. Create the Device object with a different / unused node Id.

2. Check the Database to see if there any ghost entries for this Device object that may not have been deleted properly. Running the Continuum Analyzer tests may show, and clean, these ghost entries.
