Error 1287: There is another instance of the WalTest local process running

Information applies to:

Endpoint Protection
Endpoint Protection Plus


Error 1287 integrating or sending status information to the server. The message displayed is:

The process is in execution


The error occurs because another instance of the WALTest local process is already running.

In theory, this is not dangerous, as the error is returned when two executions of the local process coincide.

However, if the server has not received status information for a long time, and the local process log files indicate that the error has been occurring in all executions for a long time, it could be an indication of blocking in the local process.

Type of error
