GP 5.2.6 - Post-VPN-Connect error

L2 Linker



Just wondering if anyone is seeing this issue by chance on windows with post-vpn-connect on GP 5.2.6 I am pretty sure it worked fine with older versions... but we have had other bugs with the older client so can't really roll back


Scenario 1 - If a machine is rebooted the behaviour we see is the post connect command is called however it errors out  "Failed to open process 0. Error 87"


(P6440-T10060)Debug(3390): 05/21/21 16:45:58:179 Full path is "C:\LocalData\_temp\test.bat"
(P6440-T10060)Debug(3395): 05/21/21 16:45:58:179 Full command is "C:\LocalData\_temp\test.bat"
(P6440-T10060)Debug( 181): 05/21/21 16:45:58:181 Run cmd "C:\LocalData\_temp\test.bat" in session -1 as user
(P6440-T10060)Debug( 265): 05/21/21 16:45:58:194 didn't find the specific process.
(P6440-T10060)Error(3420): 05/21/21 16:45:58:195 Failed to open process 0. Error 87

Scenario 2 - Log out and log back in the post connect command is not called at all do not see any event in the log file for it



Scenario 3 - Refresh the VPN client connection the command is called and it runs fine with no issues


(P6400-T2680)Debug(3525): 05/21/21 16:39:39:897 Expanded "C:\LocalData\_temp\test.bat" to "C:\LocalData\_temp\test.bat"
