Issue/Introduction

When using a Whole Disk Recovery Token (WDRT) to authenticate at PGP BootGuard, the PGP Whole Disk client machine uploads a new WDRT to the PGP Universal Server and logs an event. 

There is a known issue where the PGP Desktop client log files shows an error when attempting to log this event:

"Error sending logging data to configuration server: corrupt data -11976".

The PGP Universal Server client logs show the following:

"client request<SendEvent> returning fault -11976 corrupt data".

Although these errors occur when running this process, this error does not affect the sending of new WDRTs to the PGP Universal Server. New WDRTs that are sent to the PGP Universal Server, are in fact fully functional and can be used to recover if needed.

When encountering these symptoms, policy updates, all other logging works as expected and does not log these "corrupt data" errors.
