Viewing Duplicate Documents in FileNet Content Manager Administrative Tools
The “Release duplicate document” option on the Document Settings tab allows you to release a
duplicate document to the FileNet Content Manager object store with the same document name.
However, in the FileNet Content Manager Administrative Tools component (also known as the
FileNet Content Manager Enterprise Manager) documents are displayed as new documents. No
document versioning will occur. All duplicate documents will be released with a sequential whole

Tools component with the same file name, the first duplicate document is always assigned with
the number 1. Each additional duplicate document will increase the number by one whole number
(for example: 2, 3, 4).
This behavior does not occur in the FileNet Content Manager Workplace Thin client. For
more information, refer to the documentation that came with your FileNet Content Manager
