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.
- Backup the Server
- Restore the Server and make sure to select "Restore configuration with new IDs" check box. This will ensure that a new GUID is assigned to the AS.
- Add the Server from ES
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.
