Property “Name” of Server with original name “_sample” is invalid. The property value is duplicated.

I was writing some scripts using WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST) to automagically create a domain, and I experienced this exception in the dumpStack():

Property "Name" of Server with original name "_sample" is invalid. The property value is duplicated.

You may experience this error when you attempt to create a managed server that already exists, especially if you have read an existing template.

In my case, I was building an Oracle Access Manager (OAM) domain and referenced the oracle.oam_ds_11. template. This template defines a managed server, "oam_server1". In my logic, I was trying to create a managed server with the same name, thus the exception was being thrown.

As a workaround, you can do the following:

  • In your script logic, reference the pre-existing managed server and manipulate it,
  • Name your new managed server something else, or
  • Remove the reference to whatever domain template you may be using.


  1. Not exactly the subject you were writing about, but maybe you can give me a hint. I'm trying to do pretty much the same you did, using wlst to create an Oracle Access Manager. My wlst-script runs through fine, domain is created, andmin- and managed server start up. However I'm facing the issue, that when I try to access ...:7001/oamconsole, I'm corretly redirected to the 14100-port, but then instead of getting the login screen with username and password , i'm getting the loginscreen with an error message "System error. Please re-try your action. If you continue to get this error, please contact the Administrator." and in the logs some null pointer exceptions.
    If I create the domain through everything runs fine.
    Can you post the wlst-script you were using?

    1. Use the WLST command configToScript() to output the domain you created using Then, compare that output to your hand-written script.

  2. Bluehost is the best hosting provider with plans for any hosting requirments.

  3. You should be able to dictate certain conditions such as your expense, deposit, billing, reporting, and building preferences. The property management company should supply you with a detailed list of relevant information such as records, documents as well as any actions you need to take.Katy Property Management
