McAfee epo login page error solved!

This post is to share my experience with Onprem ePO/CSR login page error and how it resolved. Couple of weeks back I noticed the below error on the login page and once login the similar kind of error noticed  under the Menu - Extensions.

The issue  is if you've an External  SQL DB configured then the connectivity  between ePO and SQL DB is crashed due to some reasons .

To resolve this issue you need an SQL authenticated  account with the Public, db_owner and Sysadmin privileges.

Once you've the account enabled  you need to verify the account under Menu - Report Server Settings - Database . Edit with the external DB and test . If the test is successful then logout and navigate to  CSR server address/core/config and verify the DB connectivity is fine.

If both the above tests are fine , then restart the McAfee ePO Application server service along with  the CSR server  and  later the error will be removed.

The Sysadmin privilege can be removed later .
