    Hi Cetil,


    Common causes of this error message are:


    - "Base policy file on F-secure Management Server is invalid" appears mostly in situations when on the client and on the policy manger are different, and because of that policy coming from PM can't be verified properly.

    - Base policy could be corrupted during transit. To rule out this option, change a particular setting on the host using Policy Manager Console, distribute policies. Then change the value back to the previous value or hit the "clear" button to inherit the value from above. This ensure, the host will be generated a new, fresh base-policy.

    - Base policy could be corrupted, because the system is running out of disk space. Check available disk-space on the system.
