JRE 6 update 26 has been released and has proven
to resolve this issue but is currently not officially supported.
There are several reasons for an SSL-VPN
connection to fail. Please isolate the problem further following
the procedures below.
Refer to current FUJITSU Cloud Service S5 Restrictions at https://globalcloud.uk.fujitsu.com/portal/ctrl/aboutSopNote
- Certain PC environments: Try to connect using different terminals. Isolate
which has the problem, and determine whether it is the PC or the network
- Confirm OS & Browser versions:
o OS: Windows XP Professional (32 bit), Windows
Vista (32 bit) Windows 64bit is not currently supported
o Browser: Internet Explorer 7.0, Internet Explorer
8.0 or above. o Browser
other than IE is not supported. o Using only SSL-VPN
IE6 or Windows 7 (32 bit) is possible, however, the Portal is not compatible
- If these requirements are not met then error messages may occur.
- Check IE configuration: Check if the check box 'Use the same proxy server
for all protocols' is on. If not, please check it and try again.
- Conflict with virus scan software or blocked by personal firewall:
Temporarily stop virus scan software and try SSL-VPN connection again.
- Conflict with a VPN client driver: On the client PC, check if another VPN
client software is installed. If so, please uninstall it and try again.
In certain cases, existing Cisco VPN Client software may cause the SSL-VPN
connection to fail.
- Conflict with PPPoE client software:
Please check if a PPPoE client
software is installed.
Please refer to the FAQ for the detail.
- In case that PPP or PPPoE software runs
at the same timeas the SSL-VPN connection, please
apply Windows Vista SP1.
- IP address overlapping: Please check if the IP address assigned
to the Client PC conflicts with the IP address of the Virtual Machine
provided by FUJITSU Cloud Service S5 or with the SSL-VPN connection.
- Check your LAN environment: Try to connect outside of your LAN (Using a
remote data card).
It is possible that Client authentication by proxy server fails because of
Internal network or firewall.
- Check User profile rights: Please check if the user has administrator
privileges.If so, and is required, run
IE as Administrator..
- Protection mode on Windows Vista: When using SSL-VPN on Windows Vista,
please add the URL to 'trusted sites'.
Turn off protection mode in IE
- SSL-VPN connection will fail when trying to establish within a an existing VPN connection: If that is the case, disconnect the
current VPN connection and re-establish the SSL-VPN connection.
- - Check whether the network adapter
exists. From system property, open the device manager and check if [network
[fujitsu IPCOM SSL-VPN
Ethernet Adapter] exists.
- Check if the SSL-VPN client software is installed properly. Please check if
the software below exists in control panel-> [Add/delete programs]
-Fujitsu IPCOM SSL-VPN Plugin
-Fujitsu IPCOM SSL-VPN client software
- Check if the add-on is installed properly. In IE, [Tools]->
[Add-on]->display all add-on, please check whether [F3HLVPNF] by [FUJITSU
- A proxy server is configured for external access: Please check with yourcompany’s Administrator if the proxy is configured to
block connections other then certain connection.
*e.g.: When SSL-VPN connection establishes, the HTTP header will
be [User-Agent: webclient].
If the proxy blocks the header, the SSL-VPN
connection can't be established.
- Update the LAN driver. If the LAN driver you are using is out of date, an
SSL-VPN connection might not be established. If that is the case, please
update the LAN driver.
- Concurrent connection by multiple users. If your client device is used by
multiple users and an SSL-VPN connection is required by different users then
you must disconnect it before another user can establish their own SSL-VPN

VM created by the CentOS image
which is provided as standard, swap space is not prepared.
What will happen if a swap file is created while using the VM?
to OS's specification, if the shortage of memory occurs without
preparing the swap space, the execution of an application will be failed.
To resolve this, users need to create/add the swap files in CentOS, or deploy the higher performance VM type to
increase the memory size of the VM.

are 2 procedures to shutdown the VM: "Stop from the Service Portal"
and "Execute the shutdown command on the OS". Which procedure do you recommend and why?
You can use both procedures to
stop the VM properly, but Fujitsu recommends "Stop form the Service
Portal" which interacts the OS status
to the displayed status on the screen.
The details of both procedures are here:
-Stop from the Service Portal Select the relevant
virtual machine under System Manager and Click the "OFF" button.
By clicking this button, the system controls the shutdown
process and updates the status from Stopping to Stopped accurately.
-Execute the shutdown command on the OS.
In this case, the system is not controlling the shutdown
process and can show the status as [Running].The system regularly monitors all virtual machines and once it has
detected that the OS has shut down it will then change the status to
clicked "OFF" button to stop the VM, the [Stop error] occurred.
There are 3 situations which can
cause the [Stop error] of a VM.
1) If the OS hangs during the shutdown sequence.
2) If it takes more than 5 minutes to shutdown the
3) If shutdown command is executed on the OS, and then
the "OFF" button on the My Portal is clicked while the OS is
The installation method of SQL

In order to use the NTP server,
users need to specify the following IP address to the VM within the firewall. NTP : ntp.globalcloud.uk.fujitsu.com
Please refer to the section [1.12.2 Time synchronization (NTP)] (page. 58) in
the [Functional Specification] for more detail.
"Consistency preservation" setting in SLB, users can select the
method of consistency (Connection based, IP address based, and so on). If the consistency preservation is not necessary, can we NOT select the
method of consistency?
Users need to specify the
consistency preservation setting in SLB.
If the consistency preservation is not necessary, users can achieve similar
performance by either selecting the "Connection based" for the
method of consistency or specifying the very small number (ex. 1 second) for
the "Time for Preservation".
* Connection based:
TCP Communication (connection type) is forwarded to the same VM while a
connection is established.

the status of the VM is [Running], I cannot establish an SSH connection with
the VM. Why?
The OS may not boot properly
causing the users to not be able log-in to the VM using SSH.Assumed cause of the OS not booting
properly is that users may disconnect the additional disk even if the setting
of the system file checks that the additional disk remains.As a result, at the next OS boot, the OS
cannot find the target additional disk to check the system file.
Please try the following recovery work:
Suppose "Disk A" is the disk
which was connected to the VM before this incident occurs.
Suppose "Disk B" is the disk
which is connected to the VM when this incident occurs.
Suppose "Disk C" is the new
disk which will be connected to the VM.

There is a bug within Version 6 update 24 or 25 from Oracle
Users will not be able to save the client certificate if they use Version 6
update 24 or 25. Since this bug is not fixed at update 25, the only solution
for this problem is installing the Java 6 update 23.
Note: JRE 6 update 26 has been released and has
proven to resolve this issue but is currently not officially supported.

logging into the Service Portal, [403 Forbidden Certificate is expired] is
displayed and I cannot log-in to the Service Portal. Why?
To access the portal a current
user certificate must be held on the client PC. To log-in from the client PC,
please follow the procedure below and reissue the certificate.
[How to obtain the certificate]
(1) Click the link "When the
Certificate has Revoked" on the Top page.
(2) Log-in with the issued temporary
password. (Notify by e-mail).
(3) Re-issue the certificate.

tried to execute the backup of 3 VMs at the same time by using the
API, only one of them is succeeded, and other 2 VMs' backup were failed.
If the backup (BackupVDisk) is executed at the same time, the error
occurs because another backup request arrives before numbering of backup ID

long (in minutes) does it take to complete the fail-over?
It depends on the load
condition of the service, but the fail-over usually completes within 5
Please note that this "fail-over" means the time to reboot the VM
at different physical server, so subsequent boot processes (OS and
middleware) relies on the customer's VM configuration.
the announced fail-over time is later than the detected clock time in the
user's monitoring log. Why?
The fail-over is triggered by
the following 2 types of failure: hardware failure and software failure.
In case of the hardware failure, the fail-over is implemented automatically.
However, in case of the software failure, the operation manager detects the
message, and then executes the recovery work by hand which is equivalent to
the fail-over process.
Therefore, there is a minor time lag for the fail-over caused by the software
license charges are monthly fixed fees. If I deploy and
return VMs several times within the same month, how the service
charge is calculated?
(e,g, Deploy 3 VMs ->
Return 2 VMs -> Deploy 3 VMs)
Newly deployed VM and returned
VM are different VMs, so another license fee is charged.
In the above case, you will be charged for a total of 6 VMs.
