Issue: How to reset the host UID of an F-Secure PSB Computer Protection or Server Protection client? Resolution: If two or more clients have the same host UID, we have a logout tool called fs_oneclient_logout.exe which can be used to reset the host UID so that a randomized UID will be created.  Download the fs_oneclient_logout tool from https://download.sp.f-secure.com/PSB/Utilities/fs_oneclient_logout.exe Open a command prompt with administrator privileges Run the tool in the command prompt To log out and register to F-Secure PSB Portal automatically, run the command \fs_oneclient_logout.exe --keycode <subscription code>. Computer Protection will log out and start using the subscription key that you entered immediately. The client will also generate a new randomized host UID.  Note: When the host UID is reset, the PSB Portal will consider the host to be a new device. This can result in duplicate devices visible in the PSB Portal Devices page (each device takes a license into use).    Article no: 000020054

Issue: Unable to install PSB Computer or Server Protection due to .NET Framework 4.7.2 dependency. This affects multiple operating-systems, including Windows 7, 8 and Windows 10 and Windows Server. This can trigger the error: NET Framework of version 4.7.2 or greater is not installed - msi error 1603 during installation. Resolution: During the channel upgrade, the client requires .NET Framework 4.7.2 and installs it automatically if it is missing. This does not apply for the offline-installer, which assumes the depending .NET packages are installed. In the event that .NET Framework fails to install, does not automatically install or requires manual installation, proceed with the manual installation of .NET Framework. It is highly recommended to ensure Windows Updates are fully updated to ensure successful installation of .NET Framework 4.7.2. Some Windows updates include the .NET Framework 4.7.2 update (example: KB4054530, KB4054542 etc.) Note: Windows 10 versions before Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) do not support .NET Framework 4.7.2.

Issue: PSB subscription usage exceeds the maximum subscription size. For example, subscription size might be 200 and showing in the portal as 203/200. Resolution: This may occur when computers running older versions of Workstation Security (11.X and older) are upgrading to Computer Protection. This situation causes duplicate devices to appear for each upgraded computer in the PSB portal, as the new installation of Computer Protection appears as a separate device. At this stage, the new installation of Computer Protection will also use up an additional license seat in addition to the one already taken by the installation of Workstation Security. In these cases, the subscription is allowed to exceed its own limit. This is to prevent a situation where a computer would be left without protection after the upgrade if there are no free license slots left. To resolve this, go through the list of devices on the PSB-portal Devices-page and remove any Workstation Security-devices that also has a Computer Protection-equivalent device in the list. The duplicate devices can be recognized based on for example WINS or DNS names, or IP addresses. To get an overview of this info for all devices, change the Category-filter in the upper right corner of the Devices-page to Computer information.  Article no: 000011169

Issue: User wants to move already existing PSB Computer Protection installations from one PSB company account to another. How to change the PSB Computer Protection subscription key locally so that the devices would move to another PSB company account? Resolution: The fs_oneclient_logout tool allows you to log out from Computer Protection so that you can re-enter the subscription key to connect a device to the correct company in the management portal. This command-line tool removes the current subscription from Computer Protection and returns the software to its initial state, before a subscription key was used. To use the tool: 1. Download the fs_oneclient_logout tool from https://download.sp.f-secure.com/PSB/Utilities/fs_oneclient_logout.exe 2. Open a command prompt with administrator privileges 3. Run the tool in the command prompt To log out and register to F-Secure PSB Portal automatically, run \fs_oneclient_logout.exe --keycode . Computer Protection will log out and start using the subscription key that you entered immediately. To remove the current subscription key, run \fs_oneclient_logout.exe --nokeycode. Computer Protect will stop working and asks you to enter a new subscription key manually when you open the main view of the application. If the tool runs successfully, it returns 0 as the result. In other cases, for example if the network is unavailable or you enter an incorrect subscription key, Computer Protection will stay in the "expired" state and asks you enter the new subscription key manually. Note: Since PSB Computer Protection installations are portal specific, you can only change the subscription key if both the old and new key belong to the same PSB Portal. This means that if the original installation has been performed with the PSB1 installation file, you cannot enter a subscription key belonging to PSB4.  Article no: 000018596

Issue: There is an issue with the Computer Protection UI after setting an http proxy in the program settings. The proxy was set with the following format: http://username:password@<IP-Address> After setting the proxy address and closing the Settings window, the F-Secure icon goes missing from the system tray. It is also no longer possible to start the F-Secure product interface from the Windows start menu or desktop shortcuts. A reboot has no effect on the situation. A similar problem happens when the proxy address is configured in the PSB portal to a settings profile. F-Secure icon remains visible, but the UI does not open.   Resolution: PSB Computer Protection does not as of yet support authentication for proxies, so the address including username and password is invalid. This feature is planned for a future release but as of 2019-11-18 there is no confirmed estimate for when it would be implemented. The reaction by the product interface was identified as a bug and corrected in version 19.8 of PSB Computer Protection. If you are running this version or later and experiencing the same issue you need to open a support ticket.  Article no: 000017944

Issue: When installing an F-Secure PSB product (Server Security / Computer Protection / Server Protection), user encounters an error about the subscription key they are trying to use. Error: "You cannot use the subscription key you entered for this computer anymore. If you need a new subscription key, contact your administrator." Resolution: This is most likely due to the PSB product having been installed on the computer before using the same subscription key and at some point the machine has been removed from the PSB portal. This adds the machine to a blacklist, called List of removed computers, to prevent the software from automatically re-registering to the portal if the software is still installed after the machine is removed from the portal. To reinstall the product using the same subscription key on that computer, you need to first clear the list of removed computers for that subscription key: Log in to the PSB Portal Open the Subscriptions page Choose the subscription key which you are trying to use and click on the "triple dot button" on the right side of the page Click on Clear list of removed computers This releases all computers from the list for that specific subscription key. Now the subscription key can be used again on that same computer. Article no: 000001257

Issue: Software Updater is unable to download Java updates. Trying to use the same download link that is written in the logs leads to an error, so it can't be used manually. Resolution: Oracle has changed the way Java is licensed. A side effect of this is that Java updates can be downloaded only from the vendor's server with authentication. This stops Software Updater from downloading the Java update.  We have published a change to Computer Protection to stop showing Java update as a missing update in Software Updater. After this, you will need to install Java update manually (not via F-Secure Software Updater).  At the same time, we are not going to change the Software Updater behavior for the rest of the products.  To stop Software Updater from trying to install the problematic Java update automatically, you can exclude the Java Update from the automatic installation by following these steps:  If you have a Business Suite product (Client Security or Server Security)  Log in to Policy Manager Console Select the target group from the Domain Tree Go to the Settings tab Select Software Updater  Click on Add from the right side of the Exclude software from automatic installation list Use Java as the software name to exclude it If you have a Protection Service for Business product (Computer Protection or Server Protection)  Log in to the PSB Portal Go to the Profiles page Click the profile you want to edit Select Software updater  Click Add software below Exclude software from automatic installation  Write Product=Java to exclude Java software from automatic installation After the change, you will need to install the Java update manually.  NOTE: The above mentioned information is also available in the following community article: https://community.f-secure.com/t5/Known-Issues-in/Software-Updater-unable-to/td-p/116932 Article no: 000011585

Issue: I am receiving reports from Windows Security Center that "Computer Protection by F-Secure is snoozed". Trying to activate the product through Windows Security Center brings up a dialog asking for admin rights to enable the software. When opening the F-Secure software directly, everything seems to be functioning normally. Resolution: This is a temporary state reported by Computer Protection to the Windows Security Center while it is updating its core components.
