When viewing Site Server Communication Profiles in the Symantec Management Console, some of them are duplicated:
Settings > Agents / Plug-ins > Symantec Management Agent > Site Server Communication profiles
Users are unable to delete (right-click > delete) duplicate communication profiles on their SMP.
May see the following under the duplicate communication profile settings:
Existing profile 'name of the server' contains the same FQDN and web application path. Existence of non-unique profiles can lead to connection problems if some outdated profile will be used by the NS agent.
Symantec Management Platform 8.X
During the disaster recovery process or an off-box upgrade, another "built-in" SMA profile may be created.
Upgrading sometimes causes another profile to be created as well.
Browse to Settings > Agents / Plug-ins > Symantec Management Agent Communication Profiles > Site Server Communication profiles
IF the Communication Profile is not visible in the Console, your error message may say: Existing profile '' contains the same FQDN and web application path. This indicates that the Communication Profile does not have a name in the database and so it is not visible in the Console.
To find these Duplicate Profiles run this SQL Query (exactly as shown):
select Name, GUID, State, *
where State like '%<Name of the server or profile having issue>%'
order by 1
Once you find the GUID, set it's attribute to 0 and add it to the ItemToDelete table (deletes happen every 15 minutes on the NS.Quarter Hour Task schedule)
set Attributes = 0
where Guid = 'GUID OF PROFILE TO DELETE'
insert into ItemToDelete
select guid, GETDATE()
from item where guid = 'GUID OF PROFILE TO DELETE'
After the NS.Quarter Hour schedule runs the item will be removed from the database.
