    ****************************************************************
    After an existing subject is renewed, a cache look up key also
    needs to be updated since the contents of the subject were
    changed. However, do to a code defect, the cache look up key
    was not updated. As a result, then a login with LTPAToken
    cookie was failed even the cookie is valid.
    

Problem conclusion

  • With this fix, a cache look up key is properly updated after
    renewing a subject.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.14 and 9.0.0.9.  Please refer to the Recommended
