    Detailed Recreation Procedure:
    
    1.  Create a TEMS having "#" in the name
    2.  Run the tacmd deleteappinstallrecs against this tems
    

Local fix

  • Rename the temsname to not include the "#" character.
    

Problem summary

  • The "tacmd deleteappinstallrecs" command fails if the managed
    system name contains the hash symbol (#).
    
    
    The "tacmd deleteappinstallrecs" command fails if the managed
    system name contains the hash symbol (#).   The problem is
    caused by a bad regular expression used for input validation.
    This affects all tacmd commands with a managed system name
    parameter.  This includes the following commands:
    
    - deleteappinstallrecs
    - histstartcollection
    - histstopcollection
    - listappinstallrecs
    - managesit
    - refreshCatalog
    - clearAppSeedState
    

Problem conclusion

  • The behavior was modified to correctly apply a new regular
    expression to validate managed system name.
    
    
    The fix for this APAR is contained in the following maintenance
    packages:
    
       | fix pack | 6.3.0-TIV-ITM-FP0003
    

Temporary fix

  • On a UNIX sysetm, change directory to the path
    $CANDLEHOME/$interp/ue/xml/
    
    On a Windows system, change directory to the path
    %CANDLE_HOME%/bin/xml/
    
    backup the following files
    
    - kuiclearappseedstateVld.xml
    - kuideleteappinstallrecsVld.xml
    - kuihiststartcollectionVld.xml
    - kuihiststopcollectionVld.xml
    - kuilistappinstallrecsVld.xml
    - kuimanagesitVld.xml
    - kuirefreshcatalogVld.xml
    
    Edit them and change the regular expression for the temsname
    with the following one:
    
    [A-Za-z0-9._:*\-#]
