Group Manager: Missing Required Permissions Manifest Attribute in Main Jar


Group Manager: Missing Required Permissions Manifest Attribute in Main Jar


If you’ve updated to the latest version of Java 7, update 51, you may be having trouble with some sites running Java. Specifically, you may be having issues with Group Manager for EqualLogic. If you try to browse to the group IP, you are greeted with a descirptive error of “Error: Click for details.” After clicking, you see the Security Exception: “Missing required Permissions manifest attribute in main jar:…” An easy workaround is to just use SAN HQ and click the link for Group Manager. Otherwise, here is how to fix it within Java:

Go to “Control Panel” and open Java.

Control Panel

Click on the “Security” tab and then click “Edit Site List…”

Security Tab

Click “Add” and type the URL for Group Manager. Example:

Add Exception

Click “Continue” when you see the security warning, and click “OK” through the prompts.

Click ok!

Group Manager should now load in the browser. Why is this happening all of a sudden? You can thank Oracle for that:
