Error: Failed to add <server Name> into available NS server list, since it has already been added.
Last Updated May 02, 2018
When attempting to create a standalone replication rule, when the destination server is defined, an error similar to the following is returned:
Failed to add smp8-1-parent.epm.local into available NS server list, since it has already been added.
Symantec Management Platform 8.1x
If the server on which the standalone replication rule is being created is already a member of a hierarchy, and the destination server specified in the rule is also a member of the same hierarchy then the action is considered futile.
Behind the scenes the following stored procedure is run, which will return both the local server and the parent server in the hierarchy.
