Problem to read the password data using SDK DMS API

Discussion created by Julien_Nitot Employee on Feb 25, 2015

Problem:

 

Using sdk\samples\javadmsapi\DmsApiSample.java) to get a user's password state (SmDmsUserPWState).

Problem to read the password data from a Linux policy server.

Works fine with a Windows Policy server

 

Solution:

 

Not the same policy server/encryption key used to encrypt and decrypt the password data (blob) information.

When we try to retrieve it, always the same date.

You need to make sure if you are using mulitple PS to use the same encryption key.
