8.5.6-074 8.6.0-047

Description (partial)

Symptom:
When committing change in the web UI of your Cisco Email Security Appliance (ESA), you may see the following message:

An application error has occurred and has been logged to the GUI log.

This will occur despite the text above indicating that the commit was successful:

Success 	— 	Your changes have been committed.

Corresponding to this error message in the GUI, the GUI logs will show an application fault such as the following:

Mon Aug 18 12:00:00 2014 Critical: An application fault occurred: ('screen/commit.py doCommitAction|324', "<type 'exceptions.UnboundLocalError'>", "local variable 'config_text' referenced before assignment", '[util/Aquarium.py screenLoop|408] [util/InternalLibrary.py inverseExtend|328] [util/InternalLibrary.py __call__|769] [screen/Controller.py __call__|27] [util/InternalLibrary.py __call__|769] [screen/CommonController.py __call__|49] [util/InternalLibrary.py __call__|769] [screen/AppController.py __call__|190] [util/InternalLibrary.py __call__|771] [screen/commit.py __call__|77] [screen/Controller.py executeAction|70] [screen/commit.py doCommitAction|324]')

When this application fault is encountered, the changes will be committed despite the error.  However, the configuration history log will not be updated.

Conditions:
This application fault will occur when the following three conditions are met:

1) The appliance has rollbackconfig disabled

2) The appliance has a configuration history log subscription

3) The configuration history log subscription has the 'Include Passwords in Log' option set to 'Yes'
