fw fetchlogs (SIC failure from MDM log server retrieving from gateway

We appear to have some miss behaving R80.40 security gateways managed by MDM R81. Locally logged firewall logs are not transferred to the MDM log server as configured and executing a manual retrieval yields the error below.

Looks like a problem with SIC not being initialised properly when a MDM log server attempts to retrieve logs from a security gateway:

 SIC Error for fetch_logs: Client could not choose an authentication method for service fetch_logs

 

Could anyone suggest a work around or know how to fix this?

 

Management is Multi-Domain Management (primary with standby) and MDM log server running R81 with JHA take 23. Security Gateway is R80.40 with JHA take 67, will be installing JHA take 118 this coming weekend in the hope that something of this nature has already been fixed...

 

From MDM log server, we first switch to the appropriate domain and then attempt to retrieve the gateway's logs:

I believe the policy file in question is $CPDIR/conf/sic_policy.conf and probably needs adjusting.
This requires a cprestart on your log server after adjusting.
Also, this is just a guess, so it may not resolve the issue, in which case a TAC case is warranted.
Replace this line:

ANY    ; Modules            ; ANY ; adtlogswitch, logswitch, log_retrieve; sslca

With something like:

ANY    ; Modules            ; ANY ; adtlogswitch, logswitch, log_retrieve, fetch_logs; sslca

You may also want to see what the R80.40 version of this file says (it should exist on your gateways).

Many thanks, my understanding of the following is that the defaults are right. I'll log the issue with TAC, many thanks for your assistance.

 

On the R81 JHA take 23 MDS log server, to which we want to pull logs from the  gateway:

[Expert@fwcpl1:0]# mdsenv 100.127.202.19
[Expert@fwcpl1:0]# grep fetch_logs $CPDIR/conf/sic_policy.conf
ANY    ; Log_Server, Modules, Integrity_Server, IPS_sensor ; ANY ; fetch_logs, ls_logs ; sslca
ANY           ; Log_Server              ; ANY ; fetch_logs, ls_logs; sslca

 

On the R80.40 JHA take 118 gateway, has local firewall logs we wish to retrieve:

[Expert@fwcp1:0]# grep fetch_logs $CPDIR/conf/sic_policy.conf
ANY    ; Log_Server, Modules, Integrity_Server, IPS_sensor ; ANY ; fetch_logs, ls_logs ; sslca
ANY           ; Log_Server              ; ANY ; fetch_logs, ls_logs; sslca
