This problem occurs when a document is routed through Partner Gateway and the participant connection is not properly configured. WebSphere Partner Gateway logs the event BCG210012 in the event viewer.
WebSphere Partner Gateway routes documents of different types, such as AS, RNIF, and so on. In order to route a document, the capability must be enabled in the Partner Gateway. These capabilities are called B2B capabilities. This error can occur if capabilities are not enabled for the participants involved in the connection. The B2B capabilities must be enabled at different levels like package, protocol and process. This problem can occur for one or more of the following reasons:
You can solve this problem by following the steps below : Nagivate to the Profile Partner Capabilities screen (Account admin >Profiles > click Search button> select partner name >B2B capabilities). On this screen, make sure that:

One of the FIPS regulations, FIPS 140, governs the use of encryption and cryptographic services. It requires that ALL cryptography done by
A FIPS-140 compliant application must do ALL of its cryptography in a FIPS-140 certified "device". Whether it is hardware or software, that device will have all the cryptographic engines in it, and also will stores keys and perhaps certificates inside. The device must have a way for users to authenticate to it (to "login" to it), to prove to it that they are authorized to use the cryptographic engines and keys it contains. It may not do ANY cryptographic operations that involve the use of cryptographic keys, nor allow ANY of the keys or certificates it holds to be seen or used, except when a user has successfully authenticated to it. If users authenticate to it with a password, it must ensure that their passwords are strong passwords. It must implement the
Configuring Websphere Application Server to enable FIPS mode
Step 1- Edit the java Security File under WAS installed location
i. Go to <WASInstalledPath>/java/jre/lib/security/java.security
Make sure the "security.provider.1=com.ibm.crypto.fips.provider.IBMJCEFIPS" provider is uncommented and that it is before the IBMJCE provider.
"Sun JDK" in case of Hp-Ux & Solaris platforms
ii. Uncomment the jsse2 ssl property and comment out the default SSL property setting
a. Uncomment the following property
b. Comment the following Property
Step 2 – Settings in WAS admin console
i. Add the following Generic JVM arguments in WAS admin console
ii. Check the following property to enable WAS in FIPS mode
Click Apply and Save to master configuration.
Restart WebSphere Partner Gateway Applications and deployment manager after this.
Nest step is to
Update with the following unrestricted policy jars :
from the location “<WASInstalledPath>Appserver\java\jre\lib\security”
Start only Websphere Partner Gateway application in case of Simple Mode
Start all the application servers and deployment manager (if distributed mode installation is there) to enable the fips Mode
Following algorithms are supported in FIPS:

This feature is available since WebSphere Partner Gateway 6.2 FP3. This gives the users from WebSphere Partner Gateway 6.0, 6.1, 6.11 more incentive to upgrade to 6.2 just so you can access this function. The advantage of this feature is to enable external partners with supported browser to participate in B2B integration. In other words, we are offering some B2B capability for WebSphere Partner Gateway 6.2 fixpack 3 customers to do transactions with their external partners who do not have a formal B2B application with infrastructure to make it happen. This feature will allow you to include trade partners with a smaller operational scale. Please note here that the feature will work with supported browsers only.
Some important points to note here are :
-You can send a maximum of 10 MB document to internal partners .Note: It can be more or less based on the network, Browser, and memory
-You can not delete Web box receiver
-You can not send EDI/XML documents over binary channel.

This blog is on how a custom XML file be validated against an XSD file and be passed through.
First the basic setup of the Custom XML (document type definition, creation of XML Family and XML Format, B2B Capabilities and Connection) needs to be done and the XML can be routed with the simple Action “Pass Through”.
Now the XML will be validated against the uploaded XSD file before being passed through.
If you need to upload a newer version of the XSD file, you need to remove the old one first. This can be done via Hub Admin -> Hub Configuration -> Maps -> Validation Maps.
