IssueAn enVision patch was erroneously applied, and the application of the patch is now preventing enVision from functioning properly.  This is most easily recognizable when the NIC web server will not start immediately after the application of the patch.
CausePatch compatibility issues can prevent enVision from starting.
  1. Log on as the Master account and move into the Manage Services Window.
  2. Stop the NIC Service Manager from the Windows service panel.
  3. Using the Copy command, backup all the files in E:\nic\4100\nodename\bkup\4100\SP1\patchnumber folder to E:\nic\4100\nodename.
  4. Replace the DBLockbox.lcb file in the nic\csd\config\lockbox folder with the file from nic\csd\config\lockbox\bkup\4100\SP1\patchnumber\DBLockbox.lcb.
  5. Execute step 5 only if your db password has changed post install of 4.3sp1 patch 6:  If the database password has been modified post-installation of 4.1 SP1 Patch 6, the password will also need to be updated in the backed-up lock box. To update the password, do one of the following:
    1. If there is a password change on patch06 setup, and the password is known, run the change password utility again to change the password to the old password and then to revert patch05 along with the dblockbox.lcb which has backed up.
    2. If there is a password change on patch06 setup and you have forgotten the old password, use lockboxutil.exe (to created site lockbox) to recreate site and dblockbox after reverted to patch04:
      1. Copy lockboxutil.exe (E:\nic\..\bin).
      2. Open command prompt and change directory to E:\nic\..bin folder.
      3. Select option 1 (Create site lock box) from the selection.
      4. Provide passwords for master, NIC_SYSTEM, NIC_SSHD, and NIC_SFTP, DBA.
      5. In case of DBA, give the current password which has been created after patch06.
  6. Restart the NIC Service Manager.
