Fix AD intergration after upgrade to DLP 15.0 MP1

It has been identified that after upgrading from DLP 15.0 to 15.0 MP1, Active Directory integration data (or any other previously setup authentication data) is being stripped from the WebUI XML file. Symantec provides the fix via the below article, but I put these steps together for Appliance Customers.

Refer to:



1.SSH to enforce as appuser after upgrading to DLP 15.0 MP1


2. Switch to protect user

sudo su - protect


3. Backup the old springSecurityContext.xml file.

cd /opt/SymantecDLP/Protect/tomcat/webapps/ProtectManager/WEB-INF/

mv springSecurityContext.xml springSecurityContext.xml.BAK


4. Navigate to the DLP 15.0 backups

cd /opt/SymantecDLP/Protect/updates/SymantecDLPEnforceBackup


5. Extract the backups

tar xzf SymantecDLPEnforceBackup_15.0.0.45028.tar.gz


6. Navigate to the backup springSecurityContext.xml file... Please note that this directory path is a backed up version of the working /opt/SymantecDLP director before the upgrade.

cd ./opt/SymantecDLP/Protect/tomcat/webapps/ProtectManager/WEB-INF/


7. Copy the backup xml file to the production location

cp springSecurityContext.xml /opt/SymantecDLP/Protect/tomcat/webapps/ProtectManager/WEB-INF/


8. Set ownership and permissions for springSecurityContext.xml 

chown protect:protect /opt/SymantecDLP/Protect/tomcat/webapps/ProtectManager/WEB-INF/springSecurityContext.xml 

chmod 750 /opt/SymantecDLP/Protect/tomcat/webapps/ProtectManager/WEB-INF/springSecurityContext.xml 


9. Restart VontuManager  service

/etc/init.d/VontuManager restart
