i got below errors when i tried to login siteminder. but the policy is working for other webservers like IHS, OHS and apache.
[SMSESSION cookie has idled out. Persistent session will be validated from policy server.] and [SMSESSION cookie has expired and will not be used to authenticate.]
These messages are usually due to the web server hosting the login.fcc being on a different machine than the server hosting the content, and there is a difference between what each server sees the current time as. The result is the login page server sets a cookie, and upon immediately redirecting to the content server - it is already timed out due to the system time difference.
