Populate alternate ID Field Turn feature

I am working wth a network dataset and I would like to use an alternate ID field for my turn features to be able to reuse the turn feautures for a copy of the original edge feautures.
I do have a field containing unique ID values for each edge feature.
There is no problem creating the two additional fields AltID1 and AltID2 , but the tool "Populate alternate ID features" does not calculate the new values, although there is no error when I launch the tool.
After these operations it even gets worse, because when I reconstruct the network I get an error message for every turn that the turn already exists and the turns (restrictions in my case) don't work anymore...
Does anyone know something about the use of these tools? What am i doing wrong?
Thanks in advance
