DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)


I have installed DXIM robot version 9.30 and processes probe version 4.70 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.3 (Ootpa), but we are getting the following error on In

/opt/nimsoft/probes/processes/processes.log :

  May 11 14:52:44:746 processes: (NimCryptographerCfgKeyReadEncryptedValue) failed to decrypt value. RC=3
  May 11 14:52:44:746 processes: (NimCryptographerCfgKeyReadEncryptedValue) failed to decrypt value. RC=3
  May 11 14:52:44:747 processes: (NimCryptographerCfgKeyReadEncryptedValue) failed to decrypt value. RC=3



Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - PROCESSES


Dev Team informed that this is a benign message so can be ignored if the probe is in green state and working fine with the profiles.

When the new profile is created in the process probe, it creates a password key for each profile in the cfg if that password is blank then the probe sends an information log, as the probe is not able to decrypt it as the password is blank.

Cfg snap :-

      scan_proc_parent = False
      qos_target = 
      password = 
      cpu_usage_min = 
      resource_execute = no
      arguments = 

Based on that:

1 -The error has no impact and can be ignored

2 - For now the log code would stay as an INFO level message while we ascertain its impact to other components of the solution

3 - If we find it needed and safe to do so, we would update the same in one of our future releases

Additional Information

Dev will discuss  the scope with the team if is good to change the log level of the above message to show just in loglevel 5 in the next probe release.
