NetIQ Access Manager 3.2

Situation

Receive following error when accessing resource with policy extension.

Access forbidden!

Access Gateway couldn't find the needed policy from service provider. It might be just coming up. If refreshing the browser after a few seconds doesn't clear this error condition, please contact your Administrator.

Error: "com.novell.nxpe.NxpeException" found in catalina.out.

Resolution

Reported issue to engineering.

As a workaround go into AdminConsole -> Policies ->
-> Remove Policy extension and then add it back again.

Upgrade to 3.2.2, but will update once more information is provided from engineering.
