Communication ERROR: operation timed out, could not authenticate, obj error


  • Moderator

    Hi,

    For some strange reason my new fog client is getting this authentication error… a few days ago it seemed to be working OK, hosts were renaming and even joining to domain. But now for some reason in the logs I’m getting this issue. I haven’t changed anything on the fog server. I’m running trunk 7017 on ubuntu 14.04.

    I get this error on both win 7 and 10.

    Any ideas?

    @Jbob Thanks for the information!

    The problem has been resolved. Thanks for all help.



  • @Jbob Thanks for the information!


  • Senior Developer

    @kverkiss The --recreate-keys option for the installer re-configures the certificates to your new IP, but --recreate-CA resets the identity. This will “block” all clients from communicating with the server.



  • @Tom-Elliott Hi Tom,
    I just did a rollback over VMware to our server backup from last night. It is working fine now. Now I have updated the the most recent revison and no errors show up. I am currently monitoring if the problem reappears.


  • Senior Developer

    @kverkiss updating keys would’ve been fine but from the looks of things it also recreated the ca information. Rolling back would not solve the problem unless you have a snapshot from before the ip changed or before you updated the ca information.



  • @Tom-Elliott I could do a rollback to an older version. I did update the certificate because this server had an IP change.


  • Senior Developer

    @kverkiss that means your ca changed. Fog doesn’t do that automatically. Do you have the original servers CA information somewhere?

    Found a rather nasty (unknown bug), can you update again?

  • Senior Developer

    @kverkiss can you update and try again?



  • @kverkiss said in Communication ERROR: operation timed out, could not authenticate, obj error:

    @Tom-Elliott Hi Tom, I do have revision 7248.

    The only difference I have, for this revision there is not token.dat created in c:\windows\system32\



  • @Tom-Elliott Hi Tom, I do have revision 7248.


  • Senior Developer

    @kverkiss What version of FOG are you running? Having the “exact same problem” is only relevant if you’re on the exact same version.



  • @Tom-Elliott Besides I did all your provided steps as well, clearing the security token data.



  • @Tom-Elliott I have the exact same problem, started recently. I have also upgraded the fog server to a newer revision.

    When you see “Invalid security token” go to the GUI, locate the relevant host, click Reset Encryption Data.
