Unable to login to specific server using introscope

  • 1.  Unable to login to specific server using introscope

    Posted 02-07-2017 10:08 AM

    Hi

    I am using CA Introscope Workstation (Version 9.7.1) & when trying to login to a specific server the box comes up Authentication & Authenticated but after that nothing appears. When I try to do this with another server it logs me in fine and I can go around workstation as normal

     

    Any ideas why on this one server it is unable to open. Nobody else on my team has this problem?

     

    Cheers

    Alex

    Dear Alex:

    Have you looked at the EM and workstation logs for any error messages at the time of your login?

    Have you verified in the various EM  configuration XML files that you have permission to do this? Which authentication mechanism are you using? Local, LDAP, or EEM?

     

    Failing that, you may wish to open a case to resolve this.

    Thanks

    Hi Hallett

     

    Thank you for your response

     

    EM Logs:

    2/07/17 03:30:59.687 PM GMT    Workstation User "simpsa27" connected successfully from host "Node=Workstation_7538, Address=LW71001317078.uk.centricaplc.com/10.80.75.101:41199, Type=socket"

    2/07/17 03:31:00.198 PM GMT    File 'Wynyard_MTP_Primary-defect-14864814540000669264.xml' read, length=39285

    2/07/17 03:31:02.385 PM GMT    Workstation User "simpsa27" disconnected successfully from host "Node=Workstation_7538, Address=LW71001317078.uk.centricaplc.com/10.80.75.101:41199, Type=socket"

     

    The authentication method we are using is EEM, however I am unable to view any EEM files as these are owned and can only be viewed  by root user.

     

    Cheers

    Thanks Alex:

         I would suggest opening a case and supply the following. 

    Zipped content of the EM_HOME\log –make sure to enable DEBUG.
    2. EM_HOME\config\realms.xml, server.xml, domains.xml
    3. Enable TRACE, reproduce the issue and collect EEM config and log files:

    Then we can determine what is going on and you can report back

     

    Thanks

    Also, Please check the system resources, e.g. CPU, memory, handles, etc., used by the workstation at the time of the problem occurrence.

    As Hal mentioned, debug logging would be very helpful here. A common cause for this behavior occurs when a user authenticates, but does not authorize. Check for messages such as....

    [DEBUG] [pool-28-thread-5] [Manager.Authentication] Adding user <user> with permissions: <[SuperDomain: Full] [Server Resource: Full] >

    If no permissions are returned here, the user will be logged out immediately likely indicating a configuration in domains or realms.xml.
