what role are you logged in as when this happens ? BLAdmins ? if not, switch to BLAdmins and see if the object is already there.
login w/ a role having full access (at least read only to all depot object) and verify if the object in question exist in depot.
It's been a while, other tasks took precedence, but we still have this same issue.
No, the files do not exist. I've checked the roles people are using and they seem to be just fine. I'm wondering if we need to re-set the permissions on all of the patch content and then have the person perform a CUj using the same role.
So the issue is that the catalog update job is not able to detect upfront that the patch already exists in catalog. Due to this it tries to add the patch and not update. It is only while trying to add the patch it finds that the depot object already exists and fails.
Now are you seeing issue only with patches for a particular product or in general all products?
Also can you try creating a separate fresh catalog for testing purpose maybe for Abode products and run CUJ twice to see if a re-run of CUJ fails with same error. If it doesn't fail then the issue is with the permissions set on the individual depot objects like Bill mentioned.
The last time I saw an error like this one, it was a client-side cache issue. May seem like a stupid question, but did you try closing and re-opening your BSA console client before trying again?
Facing the same issue. BLadmin can update the patch catalog but power user can not update the patch catalog. Is there any permission issue, checked permissions, but seems everything is fine, please assist what need to be checked.
what is a 'power user' ?
what happens when the 'power user' tried to update the catalog? do you get an error ? a warning ? anything ?
you checked permissions - on what ? what permissions did you look for ?
Forgot to mention that we have role created named power user. Actually problem is, Except BLadmin no one can run the Patch catalog update.
Error: A depot object of the same type with the name 'XYZ' already exists in this folder.
I checked permissions on catalog, and updated ACL permission on the servers but same error.
I am trying to run Windows 2K8 patch catalog update.

"we have role created named power user. "
-> and what permissions did you grant to the role, and what permissions have you granted to the catalog and the objects in the catalog for this role ?
"I checked permissions on catalog, and updated ACL permission on the servers but same error."
And what permissions did you check for ? if you need to give permissionB and you 'checked for' permissionA that's kind of a pointless check isn't it ?
have you looked through this:
and specifically this:
