[OM TIP] Error when trying to edit a node via the adminui: "Duplicate widget id"
After installing the new patch (9.11.040) on OMU server, the following error is shown when trying to edit a node via the AdminUI:
Duplicate widget id "1__linux____x86____linux26" detected at fd:group -
Container widget "node-type-platform-sel" at fd:union -
already contains a widget with id "1__linux____x86____linux26" at fd:group -
The error shown: " Duplicate widget id " indicates, that there is an AgentPlatform file twice in the OM server.

notes: Make sure you move the file outside the OM vendor tree. You could also delete it.
Additionally, please remove ALL .xml files inside the following directory:
After that a restart of AdminUI is necessary:
