APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
When EIM does a system connect the LDAP bind fails with a
GLD0120 error.  The binddn is cn=administrator and the password
is NULL.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE70179 :
-----------------------------
A change will be made to not accept a NULL password in the
system connect information.
FFDC data will be logged when an attempt is made to set the
password to NULL.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE70179 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions

Special Instructions


********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
********************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI52468 :
=================================================

To activate the fix, all existing signon servers, Telnet device
managers, NetServer jobs, HTTP server instances, or other programs
utilizing Kerberos or EIM need to be ended and restarted.

To activate the fix for the signon server, the prestart jobs must be
ended and restarted. To end and restart the prestart jobs, do the
following:
1)  See if any prestart jobs exist. As shipped, the prestart jobs run
in the QUSRWRK subsystem (you may have customized your system in
order to allow them to run in a different subsystem). Enter
WRKACTJOB, then press F14=Include. Look for jobs with the jobname
QZSOSIGN. If any exist, they must be ended and restarted in order
to use the fixed code.
2)  End the prestart jobs. Use the End Prestart Job (ENDPJ) command,
specifying the subsystem QUSRWRK (or the subsystem the prestart
jobs are configured to run in), program QZSOSIGN in library QSYS.
Specify *CNTRLD for the OPTION parameter to end the prestart jobs
in a controlled manner. Specify *IMMED for the option parameter
to end the prestart jobs immediately. Message CPC0905 is sent to
the system operator message queue when the prestart jobs have
ended.
3)  Restart the prestart jobs. Use the Start Prestart Job (STRPJ)
command, specifying the subsystem QUSRWRK (or the subsystem the
prestart jobs are configured to run in), program QZSOSIGN in
library QSYS. This starts the prestart jobs for the signon server.

To activate the fix for the TELNET device manager jobs, the following
must be done:
1)  End TELNET with the following command: ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*TELNET)
2)  Find all active TELNET device manager jobs: WRKACTJOB
JOB(QTVDEVICE)
3)  End all jobs found above using Option 4=End. You can speed this
process by using the parameter OPTION(*IMMED) on the command line
of the WRKACTJOB panel. You must wait for all jobs to end before
proceeding to the next step.
4)  Start both the TELNET server and device manager jobs with the
command: STRTCPSVR SERVER(*TELNET)

To activate the fix for NetServer, it must be stopped and restarted:
1)  Stop NetServer by issuing the following command: ENDTCPSVR *NETSVR
2)  Start NetServer by issuing the following command: STRTCPSVR *NETSVR

To activate the fix for an HTTP server instance, it must be stopped and
restarted:
1)  Stop the HTTP server by issuing the command:  ENDTCPSVR *HTTP
HTTPSVR(serverName)
2)  Start the HTTP server by issuing the command:  STRTCPSVR *HTTP
HTTPSVR(serverName)
