After upgrading to release 3.0.1, the system is not reacheable via WebGUI.

However the virtual machine is up and available via VMWare console. The network cards are enabled, it reponds to ping but can't communicate to port 443. 

Note: This only for Virtual Machines.


Release: PAMCOA99500-3.0.1-PAM-Management Console-OVA Appliance


During the upgrade to 3.0.1 all the NICs configured in the virtual machine are connected. 

So if there are more NICs connected than the ones enabled in PAM, the system blocks the communications.



Compare the Network Interfaces cards enabled in the server settings and in the Interface Network Settings in PAM console.

The number of Network Interfaces enable has to match.


For e.g.:

If there are more NICs connected, then proceed to disconect them and restart the machine.
