APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • WebSphere Application Server is sending the same value for
    Ltpatoken and Ltpatoken2 which can cause intermittent single
    sign on failures. Interoperability mode should set unique
    cookie values.
    

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When interoperablity mode is enabled,   *
    *                      the value of LTPAToken cookie might     *
    *                      be replaced by the value of             *
    *                      LTPAToken2 cookie.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When the login process is performed by using LTPAToken2
    cookie, the security code generates the value of the LTPAToken
    cookie the same as the LTPAToken2. This will prevent performing
    the single sign on with the Domino servier, because it expects
    the proper format of LTPAToken cookie.
    

Problem conclusion

  • With this fix, the security code generates an LTPAToken cookie
    which can be consumed by the Domino server.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.39, 8.0.0.11, 8.5.5.7.  Please refer to
