Most common reason for this to happen is something blocks the CFA from reaching our billing or license server. To check if that is so please try following:

  1. SSH into the CFA.

  2. Run following commands:

    nc 443
    vz 443
    • If some of those are not resulting in the proper connection, that means that something blocks port 443 for the CFA.

    • If both of them commands are resulting in the proper connection proceed to Step 3.

  3. Run following commands:

    • If some of those commands are giving you the reply, that means that there is some issues with DNS which points at the wrong server. The name of the wrong server is in that ping reply. For example:

      PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
      64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=59 time=36.5 ms
      64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=59 time=31.9 ms
      64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=3 ttl=59 time=29.7 ms

      Also you can try running following commands that would help to identify the root cause:

      cat /dev/null | openssl s_client -connect
      cat /dev/null | openssl s_client -connect

      If the CFA would get proper reply, its output will contain the following string: subject=/C=US/ST=UT/O=.

    • If the ping does not give you reply, contact Infrascale Support.
