    ANR9999D_0818654901 UpdatePassword(smpw.c:678) Thread<244>:
    secP->cred not initialized.
    
    when the "dsmapipw" utility is used to change the password for
    the $$_TSMDBMGR_$$ node.
    In addition, the dsmapipw utility fails with error
    
    Password change failed: (137) Authentication failure!
    
    On the server console, the ANR9999D message is issued, along
    with the following stack trace:

    127.0.0.1:33318).

    Note that running the "dsmapipw" utility as part of the process
    for preparing the database manager for database backup or for
    changing the password of the $$_TSMDBMGR_$$ node used to backup
    the database, is not required anymore and should not be used
    because the password is automatically managed by the product
    itself.
    
    
    
    IBM Spectrum Protect versions affected:
    Server 7.1.8, 8.1.2 on supported platforms
    
    
    
    Initial Impact:
    Low
    
    
    
    Additional Keywords:

Local fix

  • Do not use the "dsmapipw" utility for setting or changing the
    password of the $$_TSMDBMGR_$$ node.
