srole: User [user] is in more than one role: on tty /dev/ttyp0 [firewall]:User{2}%

If you try to elevate priviledges using srole and get the following error on a Sidewinder firewall:

"srole: User thepip3r is in more than one role:  on tty /dev/ttyp0 firewall:User{2}%"

...then you have duplicate named local accounts with administrative priviledges.  The fix action is to vi into /etc/sidewinder/roles.conf and remove the duplicate entry.

Applies to:  Sidewinder G2
