  • Answer

    The causes for the CLONED status can be different. To help us solve the problem, please provide us with the following information.

    Has the NET-SOFTLOCK been operated on a virtual machine or a physical server?
    Have you made any changes to the hardware?
    Was it moved to a different VM when operating on a VM?

    Please send us the C2V file of NET-SOFTLOCK. To do this, open the Admin Control Center on the server via http: // localhost: 1947
    Under Sentinel Keys you will find the CLONED NET Softlock and at the end of the line a button "C2V".
