Hi Forum,

Content libraries are getting downloaded but not getting updated neither through task scheduler or via manually when executing the mgsimportrecognition.

Please find the error e:\Program Files (x86)\Flexera Software\FlexNet Manager Platform\DotNet\bin>MgsImportRecognition.exe

Hi,

Finally the issue got resolved after importing/installing the "DigiCert Assured ID Root CA" in 'Trusted Root certification Authorities' store related to RecognitionAfter82.cab file.

Wondering if there is a change in the Digital certificate CA or something else which is causing this issue from 23rd Dec.

Thanks for all the inputs and guidance on the thread.

Hi,

Do you have the necessary certificates installed?

I experienced this problem last week in our environment. The root cause in our instance was that the CAB file wasn't completely downloaded, so the digital signature was failing. 

hi ,

Have verified the digital signature of the RecognitionAfter82 cab file and its not showing as valid and attached the screenshot for the same. PURL cab file digital signature is valid and able to import it manually. Now whose problem is this and how to overcome this. size of the cab files were also captured in the attachment.

Please suggest and thanks for the inputs.

Hi,

Did you try re-downloading the file again? Corrupt file downloads just happen sometimes.

Hi,

tried downloading the RecognitionAfter82.cab file from PLC and the alternate links but all the files digital signatures were not ok and showing "One of the Countersignatues is not valid. The file may have been altered."  The same is fine with the PURL cab file.

Maybe try looking at the details shown on the "Details" and "Certification Path" tabs when viewing the certificates on both .cab files and see if any differences are evident there. I believe the details seen on both certificates should be the same, but the fact that you're seeing the certificate on one file being trusted while the certificate on the other file isn't trusted suggests that maybe you will see some difference in the details that might give some insight into what is going on.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the inputs and will see what i'm missing or difference between both files digital signatures.

Happy New Year!!

Hi,

Sorry to say issue still persists after the daily reconcile but for a different Purl file now. There is no option to verify the digital signature of this file from the properties

Still wondering what is causing this issue when there is not change at the application/server end.

That latest observation sounds like a different problem from the original problem that this thread was raised about. If the "Digital Signatures" tab doesn't appear when viewing the properties of the .cab file in Windows Explorer, that suggests that the complete file was not download successfully for some reason. Maybe there was a transient failure during the download of the IBM .cab file.

Hi @winvarma 

May I please bother you to check which URL site and what specific digital certificate file you have downloaded which solved this ARL signature issue?

If you could add your inputs here will be appreciated.

 

Cheers

Kevin
