On configuring LDAP Policy Store by ca-ps-config.sh, a special character of Dollar mark ($) in password is escaped. As a result, the configuration fails due to Invalid credential (LDAP error 49).
InstallAnywhere is used for making the SiteMinder installer. InstallAnywhere is using $ for its variable ( For Ex $TMP$ ). So it is sensitive to $, and it gets escaped.
Policy Server R12.7 SP2 (possibly all version)
User dir : LDAP
The defect will be fixed in future CR or SP.
