There are duplicates userid's in the ca_contact table. This might be caused by multiple ldap imports in Catalog and/or Service Desk Manager



Service Catalog 17.1


The duplicate userid's may exist only when 1 is active and the other is inactive. Identify and rename the duplicated userid's. This can be done from:

1) Database level by running: select userid, count(*) from ca_contact group by userid having count(*) > 1

2) CA Service Desk Manager > Security and Role Management > Contacts Search for active and inactive users > Locate the duplicate userid's.

3) Once the duplicates are identified, rename the inactive userid's and this will solve the issue.
