Using the dashboard, the system produces an error message if you navigate to dashboard --> views --> /standard/overview/ bd --> system. The dashboard partially loads and suddenly throws the error : "Unrecoverable communications error" and in the log of httpd showed ... err httpd[9587]: [error] [client] script '/usr/local/www/dms/policy/flex_get_data.php' not found or unable to stat


Dashboard representation is problematic.


Upgrade from 11.2.1 to 11.4.1 HF3, and click within the dashboard : dashboard --> views --> /standard/overview/ bd --> system


You can configure any possible widgets on the Overview screens, like: Security > Overview > Summary for example.
