SDM Login Problems after configuring EEM for 3 Domains


Article ID: 132022

CA Service Management - Asset Portfolio Management CA Service Management - Service Desk Manager


CA Service Desk Manager and EEM (with Active Directory authentication) works fine until we add two additional AD domains to auth in EEM. After adding the two new AD's, login to SDM is not possible anymore.

Either one of the following two behaviours occurs:

1. The following messages appears in the stdlog and nothing happens (empty login form): 

boplgin 2692 ERROR bplaccess.c 4469 AHD04042:Login failed for userid (user1_adm); login timed out

2. The following messages appear in the stdlog and the browser window is empty (it only shows CA SDM's title).

The following steps may resolve the issue:

1. Ensure that all 3 LDAP domains are running.

2. Ensure that users are logging in using domain\userid format.

3. In "C:\Program Files\CA\Directory\dxserver\config\servers", check itechpoz.dxi to determine the "source" file for the "service limits".
# service limits
source "../limits/itechpoz.dxc";

4. In that source file (example: "C:\Program Files\CA\Directory\dxserver\config\limits\itechpoz.dxc", add the following settings:
set credits = 15;
set max-op-size = 10000;

5. Restart these 3 windows services: CA iTechnology iGateway 4.7, CA Directory - itechpoz, CA Service Desk Manager Server
