Issue

WorkPlace Commissioning tool is displaying third party devices in red. 

Product Line

I/A Series

Environment

Workplace Commissioning tool, BACnet

Cause

When the WorkPlace Commissioning tool discovers a device (if Extended Data in selected) it will display the devices name as learned from the device.  If a device name is not unique it will be displayed in red.

Resolution

Displaying the devices in red does not suggest trouble, but rather indicates duplicate device names were discovered
(see F-27358 WorkPlace Commissioning Tool and Flow Balance Tool Users Guide Chapter , "Device Icons"). 

The device name assigned by a third party manufacturer is not something the WorkPlace Commissioning tool is designed to alter.
