Problem description

The following error message is displayed while creating a custom role.



While creating a new custom role, all rights of the selected base role are assigned by default. If a custom role is created with the same basic rights, the new role is the same as that the basic role and hence the above error is displayed on the Management Console. This is another way to indicate that the rights assigned to the custom role must be different from those of the base role.


Ensure the custom role and base role are not assigned the same rights.
