Error description

  • Initial SPNEGO configuration:
    
    Security ==> Global security ==> Web and SIP security ==> SPNEGO
    web authentication
    
    Using the WebSphere variable for Kerberos configuration 'file
    path' works and also security.xml gets updated with valid
    correct path.  After the initial configuration, authentication
    via SPNEGO/Kerberos does work .There is no runtime error for
    SPNEGO with WebSphere variables.
    
    After the initial configuration, trying to display the same
    information from console resulted in
    java.io.FileNotFoundException error.
    
    Error:
