cfengine:trospsawb801b: Strong authentication of server=nvpsasa002.example.com connection confirmed

cfengine:trospsawb801b: Server returned error:  Host authentication failed. Did you forget the domain name or IP/DNS address registration (for ipv4 or ipv6)?
cfengine:trospsawb801b: Can't stat /var/cfengine/masterfiles/inputs in copy

If you receive this message, check cfservd.conf on the policyserver (nvpsasa002.example.com in this example) for the admit or grant rules to the file(s) returned in the Can't stat ... in copy error. In this example, the cfengine client does not have a reverse DNS record, and the cfengine policyserver permits access to /var/cfengine/masterfiles/inputs only by hostname.
