Issue with 'conf_get' failure when using 'uconf-import' utility
The "uconf-import" utility was introduced as part of a suite of new scripting utilities with the Urchin 4.100 release. Customers who have been using this utility have occasionally encountered a conf_get error when attempting to import new or edited records using "uconf-import". This failure typically manifests after records have been removed from the Urchin configuration database using the Urchin administrative GUI.
The result of this error is that there is inconsistent loading of the new or edited records, and any associations that link these records are not established properly, e.g. user access to profiles, log sources or tasks assigned to profiles, etc.
This issue was addressed beginning with the Urchin 4.101 maintenance release, and all customers are strongly encouraged to upgrade to the latest version of Urchin 4. For customers who have experienced this failure and are not yet able to upgrade to Urchin 4.101 or later, please implement the following workaround:
