I'm upgrading a Policy Server to 12.8, and I'd like to get a download
link to update ArcotSiteMinderAdapter component in my current 6.0
version. I'm aware of this issue because the Policy Server 12.8
installer was reporting at run time the following message :

  The Upgrade Readiness utility has identified potential issues.
  Remove or upgrade (to a 64-bit version) the identified custom components after
  the upgrade completes. Starting the Policy Server without doing so will likely
  result in errors. See the documentation for more information about the

  Custom Binaries that are configured and available in lib or bin
  Binary Name: ArcotSiteMinderAdapter
  Object Name: ArcotMfa
  Object Type: Authentication Scheme
  Object Path: AuthScheme[ArcotMfa]
  Binary Path: /opt/CA/siteminder/lib/
  Description: 32-bit binarys

How can I get the correct binaries?




Policy Server 12.8SP5 on RedHat 7;
Advanced Authentication 6;

version is out of support with Policy Server 12.8.
