Symptom

Server Error: The name is already in the list

Environment

Domino 9.0.1FP10

Administrator Client 9.0.1

 

Diagnosing The Problem

In this particular case, the server itself is added in the Full Access Administrators and Administrators field of the server document.

Also checked the ACL of the names.nsf and we found a group that is no longer existing in the NAB.

Resolving The Problem

After removing the server in the Full Access Administrators and Administrators field of the server document and correcting the ACL of the NAB, the ID Vault got successfully created
