Error description

  • If a Tivoli Storage Manager Client defined only on Tivoli
    Storage Manager Source server is replicated to a Target server
    by REPLICATE NODE process and the Client node is using a
    password which has "=" character,  the replication process will
    fail with the following error logged to Activity Log:
    
    
    ANR2020E REGISTER NODE: Invalid parameter - <password string
    before "=">
    
    The problem will occur whether this password is specified
    manually or generated by the client enabled
    "PASSWORDACCESS GENERATE" option.
    
    
    
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics:
    A server trace collected on Source server with REPL traceflags
    on, will show a message like this

Local fix

  • Run the "update node" command to update a new simple password
    and let client remember it or update node with FORCEPwreset=y to
    let client create a new random password which has no "="
    character.
