Problem Description

When pushing overlay in Director running SGME 5.3.1.x (x is < 4) and ProxySG is running SGOS 5.3.3.y, you might encounter either the following error message under Job Report > CLI Response
"An internal error occurred" or
"Error: (code 99) An internal error occurred"
To verify if you are hitting the documented compatibility issue, remove the VPM from the overlay and refresh overlay followed by an overlay push.  If no error is returned, then the problem is due to the compatibility issue where SGME 5.3.1.x (x is < 4) is not compatible with SGOS 5.3.3.y.


If you are using Director 510, the resolution is to upgrade to SGME 5.4.x or later.  If you are using Director 800, the upgrade path is to SGME, which is a patch release.  SGME 5.4.x is not supported on Director 800.

SGME 5.3.x (except SGME release notes have documentation error where SGME 5.3.1.x  (x is < 4) incompatibility with SGOS 5.3.3.y is not documented.

IMPORTANT: After upgrading to SGME or SGME5.4.x or later versions:

1. Remove the VPM from the overlay and refresh overlay.

2. Add the VPM back to the overlay and refresh overlay.

3. Perform any push overlay if required (if there is anything under the overlay definition that has changed).

Without the above steps, you might continue to encounter the error message as specified in problem description.
