Abstract

OSP-OTHER-UNPRED PARTIAL PASSWORD ENTRY CONVERSION NOT
COMPLETING TO SUPPORT ENCRYPTED PASSWORDS IN ADMIN DOMAIN.

Error Description

Recently there was a new feature added to Admin Domain via a    
PTF to support replicating encrypted passwords in current      
supported releases of PowerHA. When all nodes in the Admin      
Domain have the PTF applied and clustering is started, Admin    
Domain goes through its conversion of replacing the old        
password entry with the new one (different format but same      
password) for each profile managed by Admin Domain in one of    
its indexes.                                                    
                                                               
It was discovered that the conversion was not completing across
all of the nodes.                                              
                                                               
This APAR will be used to enhance existing code to better      
handle the case when a password can't be retrieved for some    
reason during the conversion and will provide a more desirable  
outcome.                                                        

Problem Summary

Recently there was a new feature added to Admin Domain via a PTF
to support replicating encrypted passwords in current supported
releases of PowerHA. When all nodes in the Admin Domain have the
PTF applied and clustering is started, Admin Domain goes through
its conversion of replacing the old password entry with the new
one (different format but same password) for each profile      
managed by Admin Domain in one of its indexes.                  
                                                               
It was discovered that the conversion was not completing across
all of the nodes.                                              
                                                               
This APAR will be used to enhance existing code to better handle
the case when a password can't be retrieved for some reason    
during the conversion and will provide a more desirable outcome.

Problem Conclusion

Admin Domain code was changed to make the conversion process    
more resilient to errors.
