Symptoms:

Bundle capture will fail with the following error found in the hst-agent.log, during the anonymization process:

ERROR anonymize.py:62 - Execution of script /usr/jdk64/jdk1.7.0_67/bin/java -Xmx2048m

raise Exception("Anonymization failed.") Exception: Anonymization failed.

Diagnosis:

During the SmartSense HST upgrade process, the anonymization-rules.json file will be modified. This error typically indicates that the process of updating/modifying the anonymization-rules.json file somehow failed to complete successfully.

Solution:

This exception occurs when the /etc/hst/conf/anonymization-rules.json file does not update as expected during the upgrade process. To correct this you must first replace the anonymization-rules.json with the valid base version and then re-add any customizations that you had prior to the upgrade.

Administrators can extract a valid version of the anonymization-rules.json from the RPM using the rpm2cpio utility in Linux or Mac. The extracted file should then be manually copied out to /etc/hst/conf/anonymization-rules.json on the server where the HST server is installed. Once this has been done, you can then re-add any customizations that you had prior to the upgrade via the UI.
