Hi @ray55,

Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot this issue:

  1. Verify Existing Session: Check if there's already an existing session named 'Default2' that might have been created previously. If it exists, you'll need to either reuse that session or delete it before attempting to create a new one.

  2. Session Naming: Ensure that the session name you're trying to create ('Default2') is unique. If 'Default2' is a standard session name used by the system or another process, consider choosing a different name for your session.

  3. Clear Sessions: Sometimes, sessions might not be properly closed or cleared, leading to conflicts. Try clearing all existing sessions before creating a new one. This can usually be done through the Automation Anywhere Control Room or the Enterprise Client.

  4. Restart Automation Anywhere Services: Restart the Automation Anywhere services to ensure that any lingering sessions or processes are terminated. Sometimes, a simple restart can resolve issues related to session conflicts.

  5. Check for Updates: Make sure you're using the latest version of Automation Anywhere software. Sometimes, bugs related to session management are addressed in software updates, so updating to the latest version might resolve the issue
