Issue



There might be duplicate entries in the consumer policies due to migration errors which cause unexpected behavior.

It was for example reported that client enrollment might fail (due to duplicate "keySize" and "preferredHash" flag in database).

It was also seen that the email messaging feature was enabled in the Universal Server web interface but disabled in the PGP Desktop client PGPprefs.xml. (due to duplicate "disableFeatureEmailMessaging" flags in database).

 

 


Error



Errors like the following might be visible in the Universal logs:

Multiple preferences (2) for 'keySize' found on the platform 0. Possible data corruption.
Multiple preferences (2) for 'preferredHash' found on the platform 0. Possible data corruption.
Multiple preferences (2) for 'secureReplyLifeSpan' found on the platform 0. Possible data corruption.
Multiple preferences (2) for 'enableDiscardOldSecureReplyInfo' found on the platform 0. Possible data corruption.


Environment



PGP Universal 3.x environments that were migrated.


Cause



Missing constraints in the server database allowed duplicate entries to be created during an upgrade.
