Error loading Webtools "Error: key can't be empty"

  • 1.  Error loading Webtools "Error: key can't be empty"

    I get the following error when trying to load webtools in firefox.  I changed identifying information to ##########.


    Launch File:




    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: key can't be empty
        at java.lang.System.checkKey(Unknown Source)
        at java.lang.System.setProperty(Unknown Source)

    I am running FABOS 7.2.1e and java 1.8.0_40-b25.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.





    @paul_bussler *edited the backed source due to one of the reserved fields was causing an issue on the backend.  You post is intact just formmatting was updated on the backend.   Thx    @Jason McClellan

    looks like you put exception to Java by IP not whole address


    if you can upgrade fos to 740a which covers that issue

    I upgraded to 7.4.0a and added the IPs to DNS and started referencing the switches by DNS name.  I get the same error message.
