I don't have ETABS, but I have run into a similar error when running another
CSI product, SAP2000. I think it happened because I tried to use both the
constraint feature (slaving some nodes) and fixed restraints at some of
these same nodes. I had to revise the model, but don't recall the details.
The answer is probably buried somewhere in CSI's documentation, which at
least for SAP, I find sometimes find less than crystal clear. Their tech
support people are very helpful, why not give them a call?

HELP!  While running a large three-dimensional model in ETABS, I encurred
the following error message:
More than one constraint, restraint, and/or substructure external connection
is applied to RZ at joint 13.
Has anyone encountered this error before and do you know how to resolve it.
Thank you for the help.
