This error indicates that there are duplicate entries in the mcell.dir file.
That file should be edited to remove the duplicate.
We have our BEM installed in 2 server uxptpr21 and uxptor22. At a time cell will be running in either of the servers.
Therefore we have made the following entry in mcell.dir
cell Production_GDC mc uxptpr21.nam.pwcinternal.com:1828
cell Production_GDC mc uxptpr22.nam.pwcinternal.com:1828
Can you please tell me how entries should be made in such cases.
Why you has two cell with same name in different servers??
You can see the cellname with output of command ps -ef in each server
ps -ef|grep -i mcell

With your config in mcell.dir file, if your cell need to propagate an event at cell Production_GDC, how it know what is the correct server to propgate the event this uxptpr21.nam.pwcinternal.com or this uxptpr22.nam.pwcinternal.com?
The strings connections in mcell.dir file are similar to /etc/host to resolve names. I think you shouldn't configure two cells with the same name in the file mcell.dir.

If Production_GDC is a HA cell and uxptpr21 & uxptpr22 are configured as Primary and Secondary instances, configuration should be as in below link
In mcell.dir, cell entry would be as below in Primary and Secondary server
cell Production_GDC mc uxptpr21.nam.pwcinternal.com:1828 uxptpr22.nam.pwcinternal.com:1828
If these are standalone instances, configure cell name as unique and make corresponding entries
