PAM Users are trying to use RDP Access Method to access target Windows Server.
But they are getting the following popup error and unable to logon.
If "Cancel" is pressed, users are not able to logon.
Step1: Create Stale Shortcuts
At the Windows Workstation Desktop connecting to PAM server, create a shortcut of a file then delete the actual file making the shortcut stale.
Step2: Launch PAM using Internet Explorer and use RDP Access Method to logon.
Step3. Popup Alert appears
Depending on the shortcut, you may get different popup message and sometimes you do not get the shortcut target filename.
In the above use case, if you "Restore" or "Delete it", you can continue to logon.
If you click "Cancel" you will not logon.
In the following case where the shortcut is for an unavailable network connection or non-existent drive, you do not get to logon at all.
This behavior only happens from a Browser (such as IE).
It is an issue with JAVA and this behavior issue was reported before.
You can refer to an external article here.
There are 2 ways to overcome this.
Option1: Use PAM Client
PAM Client is bundled with extensively tested java runtime version so it is less likely to encounter this issue.
For example, current 3.x.x version of PAM Client uses JRE 1.8.0_181
Please contact Broadcom support if PAM Client also demonstrates this behavior.
Option2: Change the Java Runtime version on your desktop
Uninstall the current JRE and install JRE 1.8.0_181 (to match whichever version of JRE used by PAM Client)
You may want to contact your Java Vendor to report this issue if this is happening on the most recent version of JRE.
This has been tested on JRE 1.8.0_181 on IE and there is no popup alert for shortcuts.
