Error description

  • The customer uses properties file based configuration to
    create a Resource Environment Entry with a custom property
    called "password" and a specific value.
    
    Even though the password value in the Props file was not
    changed the validate report would show message such as,

    ****************************************************************
    The customer uses properties file based configuration to
    create a Resource Environment Entry with a custom property
    called "password" and a specific value.
    When they run  applyConfigProperties() or
    validateConfigProperties() AdminTask commands, even though the
    password value in the Props file is not changed, the validate
    report would show message such as,
    ADMG0811I: Changing value for this property password. New
    value specified is <value>. Old value was {xor}bm1sa2o=
    

Problem conclusion

  • The applyConfigProperties() and validateConfigProperties()
    AdminTask command implementation has been fixed to handle
    password value comparison correctly.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.20 and 9.0.5.8.
