File Move Error with Cisco AnyConnect

Hi,

I am using a Web Deployed Cisco AnyConnect 3.0.08057. I get the following error, after typing in my password:

"Failed to install AnyConnect VPN Profile because of file move error. A VPN connection cannot be established."

I am running Windows XP and Internet Explorer 8 (Though I tried with Firefox 15.0.1 and it didn't work either).

This computer used to be pretty locked down (Windows security, Group Policy, etc.) but I have since removed most of that security and I have administrative rights. Java is the latest version. I feel like I've tried everything! Any ideas?

Attached is a screenshot of the error.

More information: I used to have a popup box about a certificate problem but I have since added the AnyConnect certificate to my store and that box went away. Also, if I enter an incorrect password, I get a different error message, and if I use my login information on another PC, it works fine.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

File Move Error with Cisco AnyConnect

Definitely sounds like security on the PC issue, especially with that error message of (file move error).

I agree that it's security on the PC... but I don't know enough about the Cisco AnyConnect software to know exactly what right the application is requesting and isn't being granted...

File Move Error with Cisco AnyConnect

Hello!  Actually ran across this recently, and while doing a bit of research, found this thread. I was able to resolve the issue by verifying (and correcting) the permissions on the directory that the profile is stored in. This varies by operating system, the paths for XP and 7 are:

WinXP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\Profile

Win 7: C:\ProgramData\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\Profile

In my case the permissions on the file got blanked somewhere along the way, just had to go to the next higher directoy and re-propagate the permissions down to the child objects (files and subdirectories residing under this directory).

updating the profiles doesn't

updating the profiles doesn't seem to work for us so I'm going to update the user from Anyconnect version 3.1.x to 4.3.x. Checked all the file/folder permissions in the /opt/cisco/anyconnect/profile/ path. 

Mac OSX client

--the client update worked.

Re: File Move Error with Cisco AnyConnect

I was never able to fix this issue. Changing the permissions on the directory never worked (I tried that when I first posted). Eventually I switched to a different computer!

Good luck guys

Re: File Move Error with Cisco AnyConnect

I've found some workaround to this problem by copying XML file with profile from other machine to proper location (

C:\ProgramData\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\Profile in Windows 7).

There was another problem with version update (same situation with working on downloaded exe file - certificate error). I had to catch the file just after it was download and before downloader removed it because of certyficate error (only few ms to do that ) and then manually install new version (first uninstall old one).

File Move Error with Cisco AnyConnect

I am having the same problem, but I'm running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

I run "vpn connect "

I am able to log in, but then I get a pop-up with "Failed to install AnyConnect VPN Profile because of file move error."

I changed the permissions on /opt/cisco/anyconnect/profile to 777 and the permissions on the .xsd file in that directory to 666, but I still have the problem.

Any suggestions?  (The VPN people at my company are clueless about Linux.)

File Move Error with Cisco AnyConnect

I had this particular problem and have registered just to help others.

So, I had a hell of a time with Cisco AnyConnect 3.0 on backtrack with the error:

"failed to install Anyconnect VPN Profile because of file move error. A VPN connection cannot be established"

Long story short, it's missing the VPN profile, therefore I used the profile that was created from my (working) Win Cisco Anyconnect VPN and simply pasted it in /opt/cisco/anyconnect/profile/.xml

After I did this it all worked fine.

Below is a working profile in the event that you don't have one to hand.

-http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/encoding/ AnyConnectProfile.xsd" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/encoding/">-falsetruefalseAllfalseNativefalsetruefalse-true DisconnectOnSuspendfalseAutomaticSingleLocalLogonLocalUsersOnlyfalse-Disable false-false 204false

Not sure if simply pasting this will work for other peoples VPN connections, but I thought as it doesn't have any PII, better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it!

Hope it helps.

And I just had to register to

And I just had to register to thank you for this!

I can confirm that copying a working profile (preferably the one you want to use) from a Win installation to a Linux installation helped. (Previously I tried to change owners and access rights for all the folders in /opt/cisco, but strangely enough, none of that worked...)

Re: File Move Error with Cisco AnyConnect

i had the same issue and was able to resolve it. If you have any other instance of CISCO VPN already installed on your system then please uninstall all other versions and it will work for you.
