SRX connection to the SKYATP portal shows "Disconnected because of HTTP error"



Article ID: KB31795 KB Last Updated: 21 Jun 2017Version: 1.0
Enrollment of the SRX device in the SKYATP portal is successful. However after enrollment, further communication with the SKYATP portal does not take place. This article describes the scenario in which such a situation can occur and provides recommendation for the same.

Customer enrolled the SRX device in the SKYATP portal. However after enrollment, the communication between the SKY ATP portal and the SRX stopped.  The status for advanced-anti-malware service is displayed as follows:

root@labsrx> show services advanced-anti-malware status
Server connection status:
Server hostname:
Server port: 443
Control Plane:    
                     Connection time: 2017-02-10 08:24:28 CET
                     Connection status: Disconnected because of HTTP error

Service Plane:  fpc0
                     Connection active number: 0
                     Connection retry statistics: 0

The issue is caused by either of the following cases:

  • Customer has more than one valid SKYATP license bound to the same serial number of the SRX / vSRX
  • Customer has more than one license installed for VSRX on the device. (In the case of VSRX devices)  Even if the licenses are expired, it can cause a problem.

Having multiple licenses with different software serial numbers causes a mismatch between the Serial number the SRX device uses to connect to the SKYATP portal and the serial number registered with the SKY portal.  This is clearly seen in the message logs on the SKYATP portal:


message:May 19 23:47:33 srx_config_api: [WARNING] [client_cert_auth] - Device serial provided in connection URL ABCD1234PQRS@12345678901234 does not match any serial number provided in client certificate: ['ABCD1234PQRS@20150625']

The Message logs on the SRX and the trace-options for the advanced-anti-malware service show that the connection with the SKY Cloud is not successful, as the SKY Cloud rejects the request as a unauthorized connection, as seen in the event logs.

Event logs show the following error:

This is expected behavior for an SRX running SKYATP. It is strongly recommended to have only one SKYATP instance bound to the device serial number. 
In case of VSRX, please make sure to have only one valid Virtual Appliance license.
