When LanGuard 2014 Agents performs Program Updates and attempt to download the
wsusscn2.cab file, the following issue occurs:
lanss_112_configtools.csvlogging shows Invalid digital signature.
- The downloaded
wsusscn2.cabfile size is 61 MB only.
Replication of the Issue:
- Complains of any of the symptoms of Agent Update failures:
- Cannot contact server in agent status pane
- Patch management database unavailable in the scan results
- Patch management database not up-to-date in the scan results
- Check some of the agents'
lanss_v112_configtools.csvfor recent logging showing the following:
NOTE: Debug does not have to be enabled. The
configtools.csvlog logs data with debugging off.
"info ","update.exe","DownloadPackageFile - Preparing to download 'wsusscn2.cab' from 'http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=74689'." "info ","update.exe","DownloadPackageFile - A valid handle obtainded to URL. Starting to download to 'C:\ProgramData\GFI\LanGuard 11\Update\wsusscn2.cab'." "info ","update.exe","ValidatePackageFile - Validating transfered content by checking the digital signature for 'C:\ProgramData\GFI\LanGuard 11\Update\wsusscn2.cab'." "error ","update.exe","DownloadPackageFile - Invalid digital signature."
IMPORTANT: There is some indication that this only happens with agents that are across WAN links. Perform both from the LAN as the LanGuard server is on and also from agents across WAN links. The results should be submitted to the Support team for investigation.
- Confirm the file size:
- Log onto an agent.
- Open Internet Explorer (IE) and enter the URL using this format:
- Download the
wsusscn2.cabfile to the desktop.
- Once done, right-click on the file and go Properties to view the file size.
If the file size is about 61 MB instead of 79 MB the problem is confirmed.
NOTE: IE file download status reports 79 MB even when the actual size of the file is 61 MB.
NOTE: When using Relays the error message Invalid digital signature is not visible on agents assigned to relays. Instead, it appears in the
configtools.csv of the Relay Agent machine itself.
LanGuard 2014 (all builds)
