Error description

  • When performing multiple Tasks (for example: Installation of
    WebSphere Application Server, Installation of UpdateInstaller)
    via IBM Console without logoff, several pieces of information
    seem to be cached:
    - Authentication Method
    - File path to id_rsa (private key)
    - Keystore password (passphrase for private key)
    
    However authentication against the  Node fails when using
    the cached Keystore password.
    
    Initially (first cim-action during the ibm administrative
    console session) the input-fields for both path-to-keystore and
    keystore-password are empty (which means user has to enter the
    path to the keystore and - if needed - the password (which is
    then displayed as ********")).
    
    when performing the second cim-action, both input-fields are
    pre-set: the path is cached and the password seems to be set,too
    ('********").
    
    
    This APAR will address the issue to have the password field
    empty so that password has to be re-entered every time.
    

Local fix

  • Clear the Cached password and re enter the password for every
    Task.

    be cleared each time when you perform multiple CIM tasks.
