  • Closed as program error.

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,                        *

    ****************************************************************
    When exporting the keyfile in the adminconsole and/or wsadmin
    from a z/OS server, the realm is set to "DEFAULT":
    com.ibm.websphere.ltpa.Realm=DEFAULT.
    The Realm should be set to realm value of the administrative or
    global domain.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been changed to always set
    com.ibm.websphere.ltpa.Realm to the administratative or global
    domain.
    
    APAR PM84018 is currently targeted for inclusion in WebSphere
