Happy new year !
My brother in law wants to share his psn sub with his son on his new PS4.
He's tried adding his account and activating it as primary on sons but says an account already exists.
Will he need to deactivate his console first? Once activated on sons, he simply logs back in but not set it back to primary on his own?
Also will he need to activate his sons as primary on his?

yes. both need to deactivate Thier accounts and then activate on the one they want to share on.
To clarify a little more both need to deactivate their accounts and then sign in onto each others accounts on their own ps4.

once done activate that account as primary to ensure you can do the sharing.

once done they can then sign into their own accounts and play any game from their own or the other account and any trophy earned will be on their own. account that way.
I have done a similar thing myself and it works fine.

one last thing to remember is that only one needs a ps+ account for both to use it as long as it's active.
