Error description

  • While running z/OS WAS 8.0.0.1 (with v6.1 in a mixed cell) the
    customer tries to share the LTPA token.  The zWAS LTPA token is
    exported and installed in a DataPower (DP) box, but when the DP
    box acts as a client calling inbound to a zWAS server the LTPA
    token that comes in is found to have a realm name of "DEFAULT".
    

Local fix

  • Hand edit the exported LTPA token key file to set the desired
    realm name

    *                      value for realm,                        *

    , from a z/OS server, the realm is set to "DEFAULT":

    com.ibm.websphere.ltpa.Realm to the administratative or global
    domain.
