Error description

  • Error Description: If a client node has been registered on the
    Spectrum Protect server using the option 'userid=none', and then
    a sign-on attempt is made from that node using an incorrect
    password, multiple sign-on sessions will be opened to the
    server. Three sessions will be opened if the sign-on is made
    from the backup-archive GUI and two sessions if the command line
     is used.
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected: 7.1
    
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics (If Applicable) Check the activity log
    for messages showing the multiple sign-on sessions with invalid
    password, for example
    
    
       ANR0424W Session 55 for node <node> (WinNT) refused -
         invalid password submitted. (SESSION: 55)
    
     ANR0424W Session 56 for node <node> (WinNT) refused -
            invalid password submitted. (SESSION: 56)
    
           ANR0424W Session 57 for node <node> (WinNT) refused -
             invalid password submitted. (SESSION: 57)

Problem conclusion

  • The problem has been fixed so that the situation when incorrect
    password is provided for a  node with no administrative user ID
    specified is handled properly and Java GUI client provides a
    user with the possibility to re-enter the correct password as
    expected.
