Environment

Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - MON_CONFIG_SERVICE

Resolution

The security.cfg file contains all security data: users, passwords, ACLs and probe permissions.

All hubs have a security.cfg file and all hubs sync to the highest version number.

Due to a security.cfg file corruption this resulted in an MCS error via Operator Console. 

Use the following KB to recover the security.cfg and then re-test the MCS scenario. 

UIM - Use the secedit utility to recover or modify the security.cfg

Additional Information

Bus users can copy mcs profiles between any two groups only if they have all permissions.
Account users can copy mcs profiles between any two groups that were created by someone within their account.
In either case, if the conditions are not met or the profile already exists at the target group the same error will popup.
