FINAL UPDATE: December 11, 9:50a PST
IDSA appears to be working for the majority of users now.  If you are still having issues running the IDSA scan, please open a new thread for assistance.

Thank you,

I am having this problem of the endless scan. First noticed it today, November 17, 2020. Never had a problem before this. Log files from C:\ProgramData\Intel\DSA on my computer are attached as zip files.

@Desertdweller   Thank you for providing your logs.  I've sent them to our developers to help with our investigation on this particular issue.

Here are some more log files from another machine exhibiting the same.

DSA was uninstalled, uninstalled with the uninstall tool, reinstalled, different browsers tried.

I tried different browsers, uninstalled and reinstalled DSA, used uninstaller and reinstalled DSA. Windows 10 20H2 is up to date. I tried with or without VPN, antivirus, ad block and so on. My work computer is similar to my private laptop. There I've had a few updates through DSA since it stopped working for me here. I hope you can find a solution with the attached logs. Thank you.

I'm also experiencing an endless scan with IDSA. I've attached the logs from my IDSA I hope it helps in resolving this issue.

This is Monique with Intel.  We are releasing a new version of IDSA today that has a fix for the endless scan issue previously reported.  However there is a completely unrelated issue with our Intel Download Center servers that is impacting IDSA as well as other Download Center pages.  This has has been escalated internally and we are waiting for a fix.

Thanks for your patience,

I too am experiencing this same issue.  Are you still needing the log files, as this has just started occurring on machines here in the past few days or so?  Before, this has always worked flawlessly.

Thank you for your patience.  IDSA should be working for most users now.  If you are still experiencing an endless scan loop or red banner error message, please wait a few hours and try again.  It could take 24 hours for the propagation to complete globally.

I installed the new installer (4MB instead of 2MB) but the scan tool still hangs for me.

@devnullius  I saw your other thread regarding the issues with your video & the graphics driver.   If you are still having issues with the IDSA scan itself, the Intel agent can assist.  I will be closing this thread as the endless scan issue seems to be resolved for most users.

Thanks,

Monique with Intel Corporation
