Changes Do Not Take Effect

  • Hi There,

    2.3.1-RELEASE-p1 (amd64)

    Trying to make changes to an existing IPSec Tunnel. Essentially just need to change the Interface that it is using. When I make the change and save, the change is not represented. This is even after applying changes as well. I even deleted the tunnel just to find it never deleted.

  • This issue has been resolved. So it looks like the upgrade of pfsense from 2.2 series to 2.3 series changes how they handle group permissions. One of the things that happens is that the Router Admins group that is used for active directory integration sets a “permission” of “User - Config: Deny Config Write” which says in the description, “If present, ignores requests from this user to write config.xml.”

    You can fix this by logging in as admin and removing that permission setting from the router admins group.
