The duplicate userid's may exist only when 1 is active and the other is inactive. Identify and rename the duplicated userid's for ServiceDesk. This can be done from: 1) Database level by running: select userid, count(*) from ca_contact where userid like '%ServiceDesk%' 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 for ServiceDesk.
3) Once the duplicates are identified, rename the inactive ServiceDesk userid and this will solve the issue.
