The recommended administrator responses apply to IT representatives with monitoring and configuration access to the secure gateway configured to provide VPN access.


Note Restarting the endpoint OS and AnyConnect might help to recover from some errors.


The messages in this document are in alphabetical order, except for the following one:

 Message not present in this document 

Description    The ASA sent a message to AnyConnect that is not predefined. The code in the message did not match a string in the message log.

The messages listed in this document are predefined messages from the ASA, unless the description states otherwise.

 A new PIN has been generated for you: PIN.

Description    The server generated a new personal identification number (PIN) for use with the SDI authentication token.

Recommended User Response    None.

 A security threat has been detected in the received server certificate. A VPN 
connection will not be established.

Description    A security threat was detected in the received server certificate. The threat is likely the result of a null character prefix attack.

Recommended User Response    Report the issue to your organization's technical support.

Recommended Administrator Response    Provide instructions to obtain the certificate required for VPN access.

 A user other than the one who started the VPN connection has logged into the 
computer locally. The VPN connection has been disconnected. Close all sensitive 
networked applications.

Description    AnyConnect disconnected from the VPN because another user logged into the local console, the AnyConnect client profile Retain VPN on Logoff parameter is enabled, and the associated User Enforcement parameter is set to "Same user only." Thus, the client is configured to retain the VPN connection following the logoff of the local console user, and to disconnect from the VPN if a different user logs into the local console. The different user was not authenticated by the secure gateway for access to the private network, so the VPN connection has been disconnected to ensure the protection of the private network.

Recommended User Response    Ask the unauthenticated user to log off, then try a new VPN connection.

 Another user has logged into your computer locally, and only one local user is 
allowed. The VPN connection has been disconnected. Close all sensitive networked 
applications.

Description    AnyConnect disconnected from the VPN because another user logged into the local console, the AnyConnect client profile Retain VPN on Logoff parameter is enabled, and the associated User Enforcement parameter is set to "Same user only." Thus, the client is configured to retain the VPN connection following the logoff of the local console user, and to disconnect from the VPN if a different user logs into the local console. The different user was not authenticated by the secure gateway for access to the private network, so the VPN connection has been disconnected to ensure the protection of the private network.

Recommended User Response    Ask the unauthenticated user to log off, then try a new VPN connection.

 Another user has logged into your computer, and only one user is allowed. The VPN 
connection has been disconnected. Close all sensitive networked applications.

Description    AnyConnect disconnected from the VPN because another user logged into the local console, the AnyConnect client profile Retain VPN on Logoff parameter is enabled, and the associated User Enforcement parameter is set to "Same user only." Thus, the client is configured to retain the VPN connection following the logoff of the local console user, and to disconnect from the VPN if a different user logs into the local console. The different user was not authenticated by the secure gateway for access to the private network, so the VPN connection has been disconnected to ensure the protection of the private network.

 Automatic profile updates are disabled and the local VPN profile does not match 
the secure gateway VPN profile.

Description    The secure gateway is configured to upload an AnyConnect XML profile. AnyConnect is configured to skip profile updates, but cannot update to this version of the profile. Because the profile can specify a security policy, AnyConnect cannot establish a connection. The most common cause of this condition is connecting to a secure gateway with a version of AnyConnect, such as the Palm Pre, that does not support profile updates, or connecting with the BypassDownloader setting configured in the local policy file.

Recommended Administrator Response    Configure a group policy that does not require an AnyConnect profile.

 Cannot verify required local security policy. This device is not supported. Please 
contact your network administrator.

Description    The AnyConnect profile requires the endpoint to be protected by a mobile device policy, but the endpoint OS could not be identified.

Recommended Administrator Response    To ensure maximum device compatibility, ensure that the endpoint is running the latest version of the AnyConnect client, and the ASA is running the latest software release.
