When creating a new server instance, you get to a step that says "A new server instance has been created." Silly me, I noticed in the summary of the settings that I had set something wrong. I also saw that the Back button was available, so I used it to back up and correct the setting. Then, when I tried to go forward, it complained that the server instance I had created still existed.

While it might be nice to think of this as a "feature", typically the Back button should disappear or become insensitive once you cannot modify the settings in the previous steps.

How to repeat:
Create a new server instance. Stop on the step where the message "A new server instance has been created."

Use the Back button to go back one step.

Use the Next button to go forward one step.

You will get an error message telling you that an instance already exists.

Suggested fix:
When you reach the last step, make the Back button insensitive.

The wizard has been changed and this problem does not exist anymore.

An entry has been added to the 5.2.16 changelog:

In the Create a new server instance wizard, on the last page of the wizard if the Back button was pressed and then the Next button pressed, an error was generated stating the server instance already existed.
