Double Node Registering

Just out of curiosity what happens if two nodes using the same proper credentials were to try to register when their respective server comes online? Would it be a first come first served type of issue?

I only wonder because this week I am working on my father’s node and got to thinking that it would only be a few steps for me to put his node onto my hub server. If his node is residing on my hub in the cloud, what would happen if he were to plug in his physical Allstar node running on his Raspberry Pi at his house? Would both register or would the active be the node that registered first?

The IP address will flop back and fourth between the two nodes frequently. All other nodes will be confused and won’t connect reliably.
