Issue/Introduction

       The status of the Detection server shows as "starting" in the Enforce UI but the status never changes. The File Reader is in "starting" status and it keeps restarting.

Resolution

Check the FileReader.log file on the Detection server:

The FileReader is waiting for the policies from the Enforce server. The solution is to restart the Vontu Monitor Controller on the Enforce server to reinitialize the communication between the Enforce and the Detection servers.
