Address/Address Group Objects Must Have Different Names

In this example, two address objects have been created: add1 and add2.

If an Address Group named add1 is created, the following error appears:
Error: Operation failed: add1 is already in use.

PAN-OS 9.1.x and 10.0.x


In Panorama under Templates > Objects, Address and Address Group, Services and Service Group objects, must have different names.

Note: The Address and Address Group can have the same name as long as they are not in the same scope; one can be in Device Group and another in Shared.

If there are objects with the same name in the Address and Address Group, the one in the more specific scope, such as Device Group, takes precedence.
