Issue/Introduction

The Information Centric Analytics (ICA) console doesn't load when opened from any browser. Any of the following error messages may be displayed:

Service Unavailable
HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.
Invalid License
Risk Fabric is currently unavailable and requires a valid license. Please contact your system administrator for more information.
Error
There was an error authenticating the user to the system. Please try again and if the error continues contact the system administrator.
Request Failed
An error occurred trying to logdetail

The following entries may be recorded in the ICA server log:

[1:INFO] LicensingController.GetProductStatus() Checking Symantec license RISK-FABRIC 1.0
[1:ERROR] LicensingController.GetProductStatus() Could not validate Symantec license
slic_net.SlicException: The feature requested does not exist.
   at slic_net.HandleSlicError(slic_error* err)
   at slic_net.LicenseManagerTemp.CreateLicense(String featureName, String version)
   at RiskFabric.Web.Library.Licensing.LicensingController.GetProductStatus()

If this error occurred during an active console session, the following entry may also be recorded in the log:

[8:ERROR] LoggingExceptionFilterAttribute.OnException() http://<hostname>/<function>
System.Web.HttpException (0x80004005): Invalid license.

In some cases, the Risk Fabric application pool (RiskFabricAppPool) in IIS is stopped and will not remain in a running state. The ICA server log shows attempts at checking the license file, but no entries indicating success or failure. E.g.:

[1:INFO] LicensingController.GetProductStatus() Checking Symantec license RISK-FABRIC 1.0[1:INFO] StdSchedulerFactory.Info() Using object serializer: Quartz.Simpl.BinaryObjectSerializer, Quartz<...>

Cause

The license for ICA has expired or the license file is missing from the following path on the IIS application server hosting ICA:

%SystemDrive%\ProgramData\Symantec Shared\Licenses

Environment

Release : 6.5.x

Component : License

Resolution

If your license has expired, obtain a new active license file and activate it via the Symantec ICA Installation Wizard:

After activating the new license file, restart the Risk Fabric application pool in IIS.

If your license has not expired but the license file is missing, download a new copy of the license file from support.broadcom.com and either copy it to the license folder or register it through the Symantec ICA Installation Wizard.

After restoring the old license file, restart the Risk Fabric application pool in IIS.

Additional Information

The ICA server log is stored in the following default path on the IIS application server hosting ICA:

%SystemDrive%\ProgramData\BayDynamics\Logs\

The log name is in this format:

w3wp_RiskFabric.YYYYMMDD.log
