  • Closed as documentation error.

Error description

  • Technote 1666031 states that, for an LDAP-enabled IBM Rational
    License Key Server (RLKS) Administration and Reporting Tool
    (ART), the LDAP password is stored in an encrypted format in
    both the server.xml file (for Apache Tomcat's use) and in the
    ldapconf.properties file (for the ART's).
    
    In recent releases of the ART, the LDAP password may be stored
    as plain text in the server.xml file. As such, when the LDAP
    password is changed, it can be directly modified in this file.
