in the Tomcat-user.xml file.
Known Issues with Policy Manager
Policy Manager may Appear Hung Following Startup
The Policy Manager, versions 4.0.0.8 and earlier, contain the following known issue.
Under certain circumstances the Policy Manager may appear hung following startup. In the wrapper,
log file there will be a java exception trace indicating: SEVERE: Exception processing Global
JNDI Resources.
This error is typically caused by user defined group names in the Tomcat file realm which contain XML
reserved characters. The input panel in Tomcat erroneously allows the characters to be used, and fails
to properly escape them in the XML file.
Workaround - Perform the following steps:
1. Stop the 3PARSSPM service.
2. Edit the Tomcat5/conf/tomcat-users.xml file and delete any lines that have group names
with '&' or '<' characters.
NOTE: These characters must be deleted and not simply edited. Administrator privilege is needed
to edit this file.
3.
Restart the 3PARSSPM service.
