    Cause

     

    You did not update Protect 9.0 or 9.1 to patch 3 and your certificate has expired.

     

    Solution

     

    Shavlik has released updates for Protect 9.1 and 9.0 customers. Patch 3 is mandatory for all customers. This update resolves an issue which will prevent the console certificate from automatically renewing after it reaches its two year term date, at which time several issues would occur including communication failures, agent check-in failures, and console errors.
