Issue:
Probe deployment via Admin Console fails with ILLEGAL SID error. Rebooting the primary hub does not resolve the problem.
Environment:
UIM 8.51
automated_deployment_engine 8.51
Cause:
The probe automated_deployment_engine is responsible for deploying probes via Admin Console. The following error is seen in the probe log:

[attach_socket, automated_deployment_engine] (15) illegal SID, null 

The above error suggests that the automated_deployment_engine probe has lost its security settings which need to be reset.
Resolution:
Find the automated_deployment_engine probe in Infrastructure Manager, right click the probe and select Security > Validate and then click Yes for the process to begin.

It should now be possible to deploy probes via Admin Console.
