Error description

  • When an application running on WebSphere Application
    Server v7 connects to a remote v6.1 server to login via the
    WSLoginModule,
    using the user/password credential of a remote user,
    
    The connection may fail with the following exception:
    
    [4/20/10 11:59:43:515 CEST] 00000022 WSLoginModule E
    SECJ0252E: Error
    getting remote security server. The exception is
    com.ibm.websphere.security.auth.WSLoginFailedException: Userid
    and/or
    password is invalid.

    login(WS
    LoginModuleProxy.java:120)

    This same scenario works as expected if the Web application is
    running on WebSphere Application Server v6.1.
