    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: On V7.0 environment, setting the User   *
    *                      RunAs roles for EJBs may fail with      *
    *                      console message "User ID or password    *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The failing environment is a V7.0 environment, when a Multi
    Security Domain( MSD ), also known as an Application domain is
    configured. In the MSD an EJB is deployed. Setting the RunAs
    role for this EJB may fail with console message "User ID or
    password did not match." if the MSD has a different security
    realm
    In error, WebSphere Application Server(WSAS) security code
    attempts to authenticate the RunAs user in the global domain
    instead of the MSD domain. This problem was corrected in base
    code of V8.0 and higher.
