APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When issuing ILMT Force Scan, a compressed package with the scan
    results is created in the local:///ilmt/output directory.
    The naming convention of the package contains the DataPower
    name.
    If the DataPower name contains special characters other than US
    ASCII characters ([a-zA-Z0-9_]) or a dash or a ".", the file
    download will fail as PermissionDenied.
    

Local fix

  • Configure the appliance name without special characters.
    

Problem summary

  • Using special characters within the devices system name
    and running an ILMT Disconnect scan might produce an output
    file which is not allowed in the filesystem and thus cannot be
    retrieved from the device.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

  • Only use US ASCII characters ([a-zA-Z0-9_]) or a dash or a "."
    for the device system name.
