Symptoms

After the 6.2.1 upgrade for all VPN orders created before the upgrade where there is no circuit id yet, going into Configure Product and accessing any Connection Attributes page and trying to click Next Connection or Done causes a null pointer exception error. This appears to be because in 6.0.15 the serv_item_desc column in the serv_item table was null until a circuit id was generated for an item. In 6.2.1 a value is populated there from serv item creation. If no value is found there when going into Connection Attributes it throws a null pointer exception.

  The server encountered the following Exception:
