Error description

  • When configuring a TM1 Serverinstance with IBM Cognos
    Configuration it does not ignore comments.    Example to proof
    in a TM1s.cfg there is       ServerName=DesiredName  #
    ServerName=wrongName    Now obviously "wrongName" should be
    disregarded as it is a commentline but the Corresponding Service
    will be registered as   "IBM Cognos TM1 Server - =wrongName"
    Note the equal-sign, obviously the hashcharacter messed up the
    string-length-calculation.    Now there is an obvious workaround
    to remove or at least move upward those comments.  The real
    issues are   a) the wrong servicenames at customers not aware of
    that issue and   b) the loss of faith in IBM at those who are...
    Those customers will also start to wonder what issues they might
    have had in the past and might have in the future were/are/will
    be causeed by this misbehavior.  ... or similar lapses...
    

Local fix
