How to find already existing entry in buddylist

In the Management Console I get an error "BuddyAlreadyExists: 12" while trying to rearrange our 50 Lists with over 1000 entries. (Some folders were created by deprecated users, which is why we now want to merge/move the entries)

Is there a way to find the already existing Buddy without klicking every single ones property and check the TV-ID?

The searchfield doesn't find IDs...

Greetings and thanks from Germany.

  • You are right! Sorry and thank you...

    I've copied the ID from the properties and there was a little "space" at the end - so the searchfield showed me nothing.

    My fault.

    I am glad to hear we could "fix" it that quickly ?
