To duplicate this issue, follow these steps:
NOTE: Ensure you have a overlay file- Text file with SG CLI syntax- on a web server, ready to download.
- Login into Director, using your admin account.
- Load the Director Management Console ( DMC) and navigate to the configure tab.
- Create new overlay and provide the profile overlay with the URL.
- Select OK, and say Yes when it ask for refresh.
Result: One some versions of Director SGME, it will throw Download failed exception. However, on the latest version- SGME 5.5.12- the screen is blank. Using a Sniffer trace tool, you can see that no interaction is initiated between the Director appliance, and the host web server.
Expected result: Overlay file, or profile should be downloaded from the URL, and applied, if configured, to the right SG appliances.
NOTE1: This issue has been fixed in version 188.8.131.52.
NOTE2: For an overlay to work the text needs to be deliminted by two "in-line" statements, are per the below example:
inline policy local end-499585986-inline
