Error description

  • A non-z/OS WebSphere client attempting to make an RMI-IIOP call
    to a remote WebSphere z/OS server surfaces a JSAS1477W message
    when non-z/OS WebSphere client has CSIv2 basic authentication
    outbound set to required, and remote z/OS WebSphere server has
    CSIv2 basic authentication inbound set to required.  Identity
    assertion is enabled on both client and remote server.
    
    Below is an example of a CSIv2 configuration that surfaces this
    error.
    
    Client non-z/OS WebSphere setup is:
    -----
    Secure administration, applications, and infrastructure > CSIv2
    outbound authentication
    
    Basic authentication = Required
    Client certificate authentication = Never
    Identity assertion = Checked
     Specify an alternative trusted identity
     User = USERID
    Stateful sessions = checked
    Custom outbound mapping = unchecked
    Security attribute propagation = checked
    ----
    
    Remote z/OS WebSphere setup is:
    -----
    Secure administration, applications, and infrastructure > CSIv2
    inbound
    authentication
    
    Basic authentication = Required
    Client certificate authentication = Never
    Identity assertion = Checked
     Trusted identities
     User = USERID
    Stateful sessions = checked
    Security attribute propagation = checked
    -----
    
    The client fails resulting in following message to non-z/OS
    WebSphere client SystemOut.log
    
    JSAS1477W: SECURITY CLIENT/SERVER CONFIG MISMATCH:  The client
    security configuration (sas.client.props or outbound settings in
    GUI) does not support the server security configuration for the
    following reasons:
    ERROR 1: JSAS0612E: The client requires client authentication
    (e.g., userid/password or token), but the server does not
    support it.
    ERROR 2: JSAS0614E: The authentication mechanism OID
    supplied by the server is an unsupported OID for this WebSphere
    release.
    

Local fix

  • If security requirements of client server allow for basic
    authentication outbound supported, change required to supported.
    
    In the administrative console:
    -----
    Secure administration, applications, and infrastructure > CSIv2
    outbound authentication
    
    Basic authentication = Supported
    -----

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: For WebSphere Application Server for    *
    *                      z/OS, a client process attempting to    *
    *                      locate a resource in a WebSphere        *

    *                      when CSIv2 client authentication is     *
    *                      required by the client.                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    For WebSphere Application Server for z/OS, the location daemon
    does not support client authentication. A client that requires
    client authentication fails to send the CSIv2 message and the
    resource is not located. The client fails with an error
    message as follows,
    
    JSAS1477W: SECURITY CLIENT/SERVER CONFIG MISMATCH:  The client
    security configuration (sas.client.props or outbound settings
    in GUI)does not support the server security configuration for
    the following reasons:
         ERROR 1: JSAS0612E: The client requires client
    authentication (e.g., userid/password or token), but the
    server does not support it.
    
         ERROR 2: JSAS0614E: The authentication mechanism OID
    supplied by the server is an unsupported OID for this
    WebSphere release.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The security code was modified to allow the client to send the
    CSIv2 request to the location daemon when client
    authentication is required by the client.
