Setting up HA - "Same server ID"

I am trying to set up an HA collective as a learning exercise and I keep getting the following error:




unable to write server ha1 information to server ha1


error -217219670: RPC invoke failed[-18041] Two servers have the same server ID




I have set up the two PI servers (ha1 and ha2) on virtual machines on the same host. They are both copies of the same VM of Windows Server 2003 and I installed PI on each after copying the VM. I have looked at the server IDs on the VMs and they are not the same. I  get this error message even if I try to create a collective with only one machine in it!


Any ideas? the PI servers are both 3.4.375.80.
