Live security expires on rental device


Today all my T20 devices (12.7.2 U1) is listed as expires 02-01-2022 but looking at details for the feature key it says Mar-08-2022, so something is wrong here.

Downloading a new feature key do not help. I have opened a case, 1645003, but no response yet and phone calling support is not better.

Anybody seeing this issue?

    Finally got through and they are aware of the feature key issues with rental devices and working on it.

    I Wonder why it is not listet as a issue on the status page?

    Same problem here, with different device models. :(

    Well, a bit bad as the Security services stops working until it is fixed.

    Hi @rv@kaufmann.dk
    The issue should be resolved now -- if for some reason it is not, please reply to your support ticket -- it's with the correct team to help.
    If you have a non-operational firewall, that team can create temporary keys to apply to the firewall if needed.

    For what it's worth yes thankfully it seems to be fixed now as I had the same issue with about 15-20 MSSP licensed appliances (mostly M270s and FireboxV and a few others), where one of them still had the "expired" license key in the portal which Support had to issue a new one for (the others we manually reinstalled the key or it refreshed by the time we got to it).

    It wasn't just the subscription services that stopped working - the "IP Addresses Allowed Outbound Access" value got reset to "1" as well as a number of other line items not working as intended, so even basic traffic flow broke until it was fixed.

    Fingers crossed it doesn't happen again - already had enough explaining to do with the clients.
