Error description

  • When IBM BigFix uses domain authentication, QVM's interaction
    with IBM BigFix will fail when the configuration of the
    integration has a user name that is entered with a format of
    domain\user.
    

Local fix

  • Edit the file /opt/qvm/iem/webreports.properties
    Add an additional "\" to parameter
    webreports.username=domain\user so that is now
    webreports.username=domain\\user
    
    Edit the file
    /opt/qvm/adaptor/config/plugin-bigfix.properties
    Add "\\ to the parameter bes.rest.username= domainusername
    so that is now bes.rest.username= domainuser\\name
