Pulling a overlay file from a URL doesn't work
I cannot pull a overlay file from a web server, using the URL feature of DIrector.
I would like to pull the local policy from a URL but it does not appear to be working. The policy is blank when refreshed.
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.
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 220.127.116.11.
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
