Information Required to Escalate eSF Application Issues

Issue description

This article serves as a guide to gathering necessary information before opening an escalation item for embedded Solutions Framework (eSF) apps issues.

Note:  Make sure to use all available technical support resources before electing to escalate issues.

eSF Application Issue Primary Requirements

Note:  If there are working printers on site, always get comparison logs, and then send both sets of logs. This will help in comparing the settings from a working device with one that has issues.

Requirement and RelevanceHow to Obtain

This document contains all the printer settings and running firmware code.

On the printer, press Menu  Reports  Menu Settings Page; or xref_FA877_xref for more information.

Logs Gzip

This is a compressed file which contains all the logs from the printer's SE page. This also contains fwdebug for the last three (3) 900 errors as long as auto reboot is enabled.

Notes:

  • Applies to all Network-connected MFPs

  • Security Debugging should be enabled.

  • Make sure to collect this log immediately after the issue is reproduced.

Exported Embedded Solutions Settings

This contains the configuration on how the eSF application is set up.

Exported Security Settings

This contains the configuration on how the printer security settings are set up.

Exported Device/Printer UCF Settings

This contains the configuration on how the base settings of the printer are set up.

App-specific UCF settings

This contains the configuration per app.

  1. Open the printer's Embedded Web Server (EWS) via a web browser.

  2. Go to Apps, click on the app name to open its configuration page.

  3. Click on the "Export" button to save the app's UCF file.

Embedded Solutions log

Notes:

    If RegisterME application is used:

  • Make sure the same User Attribute is used on application Configure webpage.

  • Make sure the same User Attribute is used while initializing filterFormat and resultProperties in the Authentication Script.

    Example for LDAP

    ~string filterFormat = "(&(objectClass=inetOrgPerson)(uid={0.EN_US}))" ~ string[] resultProperties = new string[] { "uid"}

    Example for Active Directory

    ~ string filterFormat = "(&(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName={0.EN_US}))"

    ~ string[] resultProperties = new string[] { "sAMAccountName" }

  • Make sure the same objectClass is used while initializing filterFormat in the Authentication Script.

    Example for LDAP

    Example for LDAP or Active Directory with SSL

    ~ 636

  • Make sure you have set Enable SSL and SSL Certificate fields correctly on application Configure webpage.

    Example for LDAP or Active Directory without SSL

    ~ Enable SSL should be unchecked and No SSL Certificate should be uploaded

    Example for LDAP or Active Directory with SSL

    ~ Enable SSL should be checked and a Valid SSL Certificate should be uploaded

  • Make sure correct Port is used when initializing serverUri in the RegisterME Authentication Script.

    Example for LDAP without SSL
