Object already exists error when creating new AS under an ES

Issue

When attempting to add a new Automation Server under an Enterprise Server that already has one or more AS servers attached it results in an "Object already exists" error

ERROR:

Object already exists

Domain: Data access

Info:~/System/Server Communication/Models/xxxxxxxx/Members/xxxxxxxxx in module Run Db manager

xxxxxxxx = Global Unique Identifier (GUID)

Product Line

Environment

Enterprise Server

Automation Server

Cause

The AS that is being added has been restored from a backup created from one of the servers that are already configured under the ES resulting in a duplicate GUID.

The GUID underlined in red in the screenshot above is the duplicated Id.

Resolution

When restoring a backup into an AS that came from a different AS, with the intent of re-using the configuration, make sure to select the 'Restore configuration with new IDs' check box. This will ensure that a new GUID is assigned to the AS

Please note that the restore function to re-use configuration data from a backup set is supported for all Building Operation supported protocols, except for BACnet and b3 BACnet.
