Workaround: Assign a second host manually.
Access 1191407 When you generate a report in the Cardholder Management task that includes Activation date or Expiration date, the report results only include cardholders. The report should also include credentials, which also include activation and expiration dates.

Access 1067500 If an area is configured with interlock, and one of the doors has an unlock schedule, you receive an Interlock configuration error message even though the configuration is valid.
Access 1010579 Advanced settings for returning visitors are not saved in the Visitor management task.
Access 784592 If a cardholder enters an area, and then their card is swiped outside of the area, they are still considered inside that area in the Time and attendance report.
NOTE: Make sure that the area is fully secured, meaning that people cannot enter or exit the area without swiping their card.
