The behavior always occurs when you attempt to duplicate a project to a connected network drive on the partner server. When duplicating, after copying the project, the computer name of the partner server is read from the setting "Store duplicated project for redundancy partner at" in the Project Duplicator and inserted in the copied WinCC project. For this reason, in this setting you must always enter the UNC path of the partner server (for example: "\\Server2\Projects\<Projectname>.mcp).

Recommendation
For input of the destination path always use the button  and the networt path via "Network".

If you have selected only a network drive instead of the UNC path, you get the error message described above.


Note
