Error description

  • In the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus User Interface VM backup
    options screen, the fields/buttons to save guest user
    credentials are disabled unless the "Catalog File Metadata" box
    is checked.
    These credentials are independent of the file catalog option and
    are also used for IP reconfiguration during VM restore.
    
    Users should be able to set and save fingerprint and
    credentials without needing to check the catalog file metadata
    box.
    
    IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Versions Affected:
    IBM Spectrum Protect Plus 10.1.8
    
    Additional Keywords: SPP, SPPlus, TS007745171, credentials, GUI
    

Local fix

  • 1. Enable "Catalog File Metadata" option
    2. Set the user credentials
    3. Disable "Catalog File Metadata" option
