We have set up SiteMinder Protection for Sharepoint with an Agent for Sharepoint Proxy Server and Agent. We are currently moving to a new policy server and have exported and imported policy store objects from old policy server/store (12.51/AD LDS) to new policy server/store(12.52/AD LDS). However with the new policy servers, we are receiving the below errors:


[][ERROR][sm-FedServer-00120] postProcess() throws exception: ncom.netegrity.assertiongenerator.AssertionGeneratorException: Error while signing Assertion!  Exception:

com.netegrity.smkeydatabase.api.XMLDocumentOpsException: SignInProtocol:  Exception when signing SAML Assertion - WSFEDSigner:  Exception while initializing signing certificate.

com.netegrity.smkeydatabase.api.XMLDocumentOpsException: For input string: "{RC2}******************************************************************************************************************************{RC2}yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy


An Apache Tomcat error is seen on the Sharepoint side.


When we switch back to old policy server, Sharepoint works as normal. The same certificate is being used on both old and new policy servers and this certificate has been inported into the Sharepoint Central Administration Server. Can anyone offer any clue as to what may be the issue?
