Known Issues

  • Network errors
  • If the network connection to the SQL server, or to a LDAP source, is broken during LAN Crypt administration, the LAN Crypt Administration must be closed and restarted (after the network problem is fixed).
  • Simultaneous administration
  • If more than one SO is working with the LAN Crypt database at the same time, problems can occur. We recommend a regular manual refresh in that case.
  • LDAP import and synchronization
  • If objects are imported from a domain, you must specify the domain name and not the computer name in the server configuration!
  • When configuring server logon data in central settings you should either enter only the domain name as server name or add the domain name as an alias.
  • On the root level (e.g. domain), only 999 objects are displayed and imported.
  • Certificate store
  • SafeGuard LAN Crypt only supports certificates in one of the user certificate stores. It does not support certificates in machine stores.
  • Importing keyfiles from SafeGuard LAN Crypt 2.x
  • Importing a key file from SafeGuard LAN Crypt 2.x fails, if it includes an encryption rule which has the flag “/O” specified. This flag means “only encrypted files are allowed”.
  • Such rules have to be changed before the key file can be imported.
  • Compatibility with Oracle 10g
  • SafeGuard LAN Crypt Administration is not compatible with Oracle Client It is not possible to create the first Master Security Officer or to login with an existing SO.
  • This error is caused by the Oracle ODBC driver. Please use either Oracle 11 or a previous Oracle 10g installation.
