[FRS-265] Windows Firewall blocking connections to FRAM


FusionReactor Setup

If Windows Firewall is enabled when installing FusionReactor 4.x the following warning message (or similar) is sometimes displayed when clicking 'Next' on the "FusionReactor Administration Manager (FRAM)" or "Configure Ports", screens in the Setup.


Windows Firewall Warning message

This is due to the FusionReactor installer testing if the selected ports (8087 and 8004 by default) are already in use, by attempting to bind to them. Windows Firewall will pick this up, and the above poup will be displayed. However, as this is only for the setup (for example FusionReactor_Windows_4_0_0.exe), it will not affect the FusionReactor Administration Manager, but only the Setup. Click 'Unblock' to allow the Setup to continue.

FusionRector Administration Manager (FRAM)

If Windows Firewall is enabled on the machine, this can cause issues for FRAM, when machines other than localhost attempts to access FRAM. Therefore in most cases an exception will need to be added in Windows Firewall, for whatever port FRAM is on (8087 by default).

The following procedure is for opening port 8087 for public access on Windows XP:

  • Open Windows Firewall (Control Panel -> Windows Firewall on Windows XP) and click the tab 'Exceptions'
  • Click the button 'Add Port'
  • Enter "FRAM" in the 'Name' field and the port FRAM is running on (8087 by default) in the 'Port' field.
  • Click the button 'Change scope' and select the appropriate access level.
    • Private – to allow machines only on the same network as FRAM are allowed to connect.
    • Public – to allow any machine to connect.

Windows Firewall: Add Port Exception


By following the guide above, Windows Firewall should now have been correctly configured to allow connections to the FusionReactor Administration Manager.

[frs-260] Possible security issues with Windows Server and IE


Problem

On Windows 2003 Server with Internet Explorer 8, some of the pages within FusionReactor, such as the Log Archive and Connector Status pages, do not load.The following error message is displayed instead.

Webpage error details

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.2; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
Timestamp: Thu, 14 Jul 2011 07:40:30 UTC


Message: HTML Parsing Error: Unable to modify the parent container element before the child element is closed (KB927917)
Line: 0
Char: 0
Code: 0
URI: http://127.0.0.1:8088/fusionreactor/farchivestatus.cfm

Version:

8.0.6001.18702

Possible solutions

There are lots of potential workarounds for this problem. They are covered with the links below.

Note Users may also receive this error message if a Web page in a Trusted Sites Zone sends a HTTP 302 redirect to a page in the Internet Zone. With protected mode, Internet Explorer 7 and
later versions that are running on Windows Vista or a later operating system prevent redirects from Web pages that run at medium integrity to Web pages that run at low integrity for
security reasons. In these scenarios, users may receive a similar "Operation Aborted" error message. To resolve this issue, make sure that HTTP 302 redirects are for pages within the same
zone. For example, make sure that a redirect is from one Trusted Sites Zone page to another Trusted Sites Zone page. Or, make sure that both the source and the destination of the redirect
don't involve a change in Internet Explorer's protected mode status.

This text (from the first reference below) could be an explanation as to why this occurs on IE8 and only been visible in Windows Server as the HTTP 302 redirect also is a GET request.

Another workaround would be to download and install another browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

[frs-198] Problems with installing or activating a license


FusionReactor License and Activation Issues

Version Check

We recommend that you first make sure that you have the most current version of FusionReactor installed as recent updates include license and activation fixes. You can download the most current version from the FusionReactor download page.

Problems and how to fix them

Typical problems

In the following section, we list the most often reported problems with the FusionReactor license and activation process as seen from the user's perspective. The typical causes of these problems are discussed subsequently, along with the steps necessary to solve them.

  1. Restarting the server expires a trial license or activation period immediately
  2. Attempting to activate a license with an expired activation period redirects to the login page (but the license was not activated)
  3. Installing a license shows an error page saying Can not upload license: null
  4. Installing a license silently fails (you get redirected to the login page but the license was not installed)
  5. Loss of license activation after reboot on some multi-server installations of FusionReactor 3.5.1

Typical causes

  1. Insufficient privileges of the server account when trying to write to the Java System Preferences Backing Store.
  2. A Java6 VM on Linux or Solaris that has no fix for SUN JVM bug 6519088
  3. Firefox browsers occasionally corrupting the license during the upload
  4. Trying to activate a license without a connection to the Internet (bug FR1409).

How to fix it

Insufficient privileges

The runtime user of the server on which FusionReactor is installed requires read/write access to the Java System Preferences Backing Store. Depending on the operating system, the location of this data store is different. On Windows the data is stored in the registry hive HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREJavaSoftPrefs, the data belonging to FusionReactor is in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREJavaSoftPrefscomintergralfusionreactor.
Page 14 of the FusionReactor Installation Guide provides you with instructions how to adjust the permissions of this store.
On Linux and Solaris the data is typically stored in the directory /etc/.java/.systemPrefs as a hierarchy of directories containing XML files. The data belonging to FusionReactor is in the directory /etc/.java/.systemPrefs/com/intergral/fusionreactor. To set the necessary permissions execute the following command as user root:

chmod -R 777 /etc/.java/.systemPrefs

Alternative locations of the System Preferences Backing Store

Some JVMs try to create the System Preferences Backing Store in the directory $JAVA_HOME/.systemPrefs as a fallback solution if the directory /etc/.java/.systemPrefs cannot be created where $JAVA_HOME denotes the directory where the JVM itself is located (e.g. /opt/coldfusionmx/runtime/jre ).

We strongly recommend you to use /etc/.java/.systemPrefs as the one and only location of the System Preferences Backing Store. In case there is already data from other applications in $JAVA_HOME/.systemPrefs you should move it to /etc/.java/.systemPrefs and delete $JAVA_HOME/.systemPrefs afterwards (after you have adjusted the permissions of /etc/.java/.systemPrefs properly).

Clear the System Preferences Backing Store

If you attempt to install a license and you get the error message mentioned before:

Can not upload license: null

or simply

null

then you should stop the application server, clear the content of the Java System Preferences Backingstore and restart the application server.

On a Windows machine run the registry editor (regedit.exe or regedt32.exe) and then delete the key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREJavaSoftPrefscomintergralfusionreactor

On a UNIX machine as user root delete the directory

/etc/.java/.systemPrefs/com/intergral/fusionreactor

If the permissions are configured correctly uploading a license and activating it will work properly afterwards.

On MacOS the System Preferences are stored as a set of *.plist files under the /Library/Preferences folder. Once the application server has stopped delete the file /Library/Preferences/com.intergral.fusionreactor.plist to clear all Preferences belonging to FusionReactor.

SUN Java 6 VM bug 6519088

This bug has been introduced with version 6 of the Linux and Solaris SUN Java VM and unfortunately has not been fixed even in the recently released version 6.0_05. We have a technote available at https://www.fusion-reactor.com/support/kb/FRS-168.cfm which provides you with detailed instruction how to apply a fix for this bug.

Bypassing problems with Firefox

If you upload a license with Firefox and nothing seems to happen (except that you have to login again) check the reactor-0.log file for the typical error message (see also https://www.fusion-reactor.com/support/kb/FRS-45.cfm) shown below

...
javax.crypto.IllegalBlockSizeException: Input length must be multiple of 8 when
decrypting with padded cipher
at com.sun.crypto.provider.SunJCE_h.b(DashoA12275)
at com.sun.crypto.provider.SunJCE_h.b(DashoA12275)
at com.sun.crypto.provider.SunJCE_ae.b(DashoA12275)
at com.sun.crypto.provider.PBEWithMD5AndDESCipher.engineDoFinal(DashoA12275)
at javax.crypto.Cipher.doFinal(DashoA12275)
...

If multiple retries of uploading the license file again do not change this try to upload the license from a different browser and/or computer. If this does not help neither manually copy the license file to FusionReactor/license/license.lic and restart the server.

Making the manual activation process work

As mentioned in the overview of this document there is a hotfix available that fixes the bug FR1409 in the previous FusionReactor version 3.0.0 where a license can only be activated if the computer has a connection to the Internet. Download: fusionreactor-hotfix1409.zip. It comes as a ZIP file containing a new version of the FusionReactor Java library (fusionreactor.jar) together with instructions how to apply the fix. However, we recommend to upgrade to a newer version, which does not require this hotfix.

FRS-207: FusionReactor Enterprise Dashboard 1.1.5 Release Notes and Resolved Issues

[frs-245] Hotfix FR-2069: JDBC Prepared Statements throw ‘NullPointerException’ when called with null binding values.


Hotfix 2069 for FusionReactor 3.5.5 Description

This technote describes a fix for a condition under which FusionReactor's JDBC Driver Wrapper may throw NullPointerException when used with PreparedStatements whose binding values are null

Symptoms

When using the JDBC Driver Wrapper, passing a null to a setX method of PreparedStatement throws NullPointerException.

Analysis

FusionReactor's JDBC driver expects passed binding values to be non-null. The expected method of setting null for a given parameter is the setNull(...) method, however the JDBC API does not specifically prohibit null as a binding value being passed directly to the setX methods of PreparedStatement. Internally, the wrapper does some marshaling of this value in order to log it and display it in FusionReactor, and this operation was not null-guarded.

We confirm this to be a bug in the JDBC Driver Wrapper shipped up to FusionReactor 3.5.5.

Resolution

Customers with FusionReactor 3.5.5

Customers with FusionReactor 3.5.5 only installed should apply the attached Hotfix 2069, which resolves this issue.

Instructions for applying the hotfix are supplied in instructions.txt within the hotfix zip file.

Hotfixes are cumulative: any future hotfixes on the FusionReactor 3.5.5 stream, up to but not including the next point release, will contain this hotfix (and all earlier hotfixes since the last point release).

Customers with prior versions (< 3.5.5)

Customers with versions earlier than FusionReactor 3.5.5 should update to that version using the published installer/updater prior to applying this hotfix.

Included Hotfixes

  • None. This hotfix is the first to be issued on the 3.5.5 stream.

Files

Taxonomy

After installation, FusionReactor's "About" page should identify itself as *"

[frs-190] Updating FusionReactor 2.0.x to 2.0.4 Hotfix


Updating 2.0.x to 2.0.4 Hotfix:

The following procedure describes the steps required to update the FusionReactor Java library (fusionreactor.jar) to a newer version. This is the recommended procedure for applying hotfixes and minor updates.

After downloading the FusionReactor update (.zip) and extracting the fusionreactor.jar:

  1. Locate the original version of the fusionreactor.jar fileDepending on the server on which you have installed FusionReactor this file typically can be found in:
    For a ColdFusion MX 7 Singleserver installation:
    /CFusionMX7/runtime/servers/coldfusion/SERVER-INF/lib
    For a ColdFusion MX 6 Singleserver installation:
    /CFusionMX/runtime/servers/default/SERVER-INF/lib
    For for a ColdFusion MX Multiserver installation:
    /JRun4/servers/cfusion/SERVER-INF/lib
  2. Stop ColdFusion services.
  3. Make a backup copy of the fusionreactor.jar file. Copy the file to a save directory so that it can be restored in case of problems.
  4. Copy the new version of the fusionreactor.jar file into the SERVER-INF/lib folder above, overwriting the original.
  5. Copy the new version of the fusionreactor.jar file into the FusionReactor/etc/lib folder of your FusionReactor installation directory (e.g. C:FusionReactoretclib, /opt/fusionreactor/etc/lib), overwriting the copy that is already there.
  6. Restart ColdFusion services.
  7. In case of problems, stop ColdFusion, copy the backup file back to the SERVER-INF/lib and FusionReactor/etc/lib folders and restart ColdFusion.
