Error description

  • When WCT/zPMT is used to build and customize the WebSphere
    configuration, the zPMT process for the SSL Customization
    panel blocks and issues a warning message for the name value
    containing a underscore char for "Certificate authority
    keylabel" field. Since zPMT process attempts to ensure that the
    input values entered for RACF definitions only contain
    characters that are acceptable to RACF, the underscore char
    should be a valid char in the zPMT validation because it is
    valid in RACF certificate definitions.
