d7x server is temporarily down! Fri, 13 Sep 2019 20:34:44 +0000 Partially…  Symptoms may include failure to start d7x in some circumstances, failure to activate d7x, failure to run the d7xRDT, failure to connect to the server for configuration/definitions download, failure to update, etc.  You may also see authentication errors when starting d7x, and you may be prompted to change your login credentials.  Please do not do that!

We are working on a fix right now…  Happy Friday the 13th…

UPDATE:  After restoring a complete working backup of the server the issue has not been resolved.  The issue stems from a problem authenticating over TLS.  See workaround below.

WORKAROUND:  Download d7x v19.9.13.1 from the manual; download the blank config version.  Delete your existing d7x vX.X.X.X.exe file, and copy over the new d7x v19.9.13.1.exe file from the download, running that instead.  This version has disabled TLS authentication for server access.  If using the d7xRDT, it should just work now without doing this.

d7x v19.6.17/18 Release Notes Mon, 17 Jun 2019 14:59:20 +0000 d7x v19.6.17/18 Release Notes

Added the ability to specify additional command line arguments (for launching d7x) when creating a d7x Remote Deployment Tool.  This will allow you for example to create a Remote Deployment Tool that puts d7x on the system and runs the maintenance tasks specified on the command line, then d7x could End Session optionally sending you the reports on what was done, space freed, etc.  Command line arguments for d7x were introduced last month, and the documentation on that is found here.

Update:  here is a video on the process..
