Symptoms

MCPd restarts during importing an access policy; other daemon might also restart because of MCPd restart.

Impact

MCPd and some other daemons restart. GUI unresponsive until daemons restart.

Conditions

-- An access policy uses the same agent more than once. -- Importing that access policy. -- You do not use GUI/VPE to manage access policy, but directly modify the config file in exported access policy.

Workaround

Always use the GUI/VPE to manage access policies; do not modify the config file for an exported access policy.

Fix Information

MCP now applies appropriate validation to avoid importing invalid access policies.
