I have a strange problem. My name seems to be re-creating with a brackets and a number in it everytime i log into a PC. I am not Andy (1893). when i try to remove them it says it is in use as it is registered on a PC. i cant remove them either as they are registred to PC's and when i go to delete it says it is in use.

Anyone have any ideas? I dont want my database to fill up, thats my main worry.

Regards
Andy

I had the same issue and it was due to a duplicate email address. I didn't have as many as you though. You have 1,893 duplicates of Andy? hehe wow. I had 10 or 12 or something.

Anyways, for cleanup support sent me a script which I used to merge all my duplicates in a few seconds. I would advise you do that and then figure out the issue.

I have the same problem which was resolved using AN5BatchPersonsMerge.vbs script.
But a I have another strange situation, some person are added just with the Name or with the login name.
For this situation the script doesn't work.
