Error description

  • During runtime, the Audit Policy configuration being loaded can
    cause a CommandValidationException to occur, indicating the
    user is not assigned the auditor role. However when the auditor
    ID is compared against the actual ID, you may find that they
    are identical.
    
    Example:
    com.ibm.websphere.management.cmdframew
    ork.CommandValidationException:
    SECJ6051E: User name specified
    as the auditor ID does not have auditor privileges

    ****************************************************************
    ModifyAuditPolicy command did not handle trailing white space
    in the audit user name, which is one of the input parameters.
    As a result, WebSphere can not find the given audit user in the
    configuration and fails to modify the audit policy.
