After upgrading to build 199 and testing the "authenticate a user using a secondary DRAS" we are getting the following:
"Error: CA DRAS Server is not available for the security check function. Contact your System Administrator."
LICENSE.DRASServer=SARTP01 <= This works
LICENSE.DRASServerP1=SAR02 <= This causes the error
Does this look correct? Is there additional configuration required in the member or the CADRAS?
Release : 12.1
Component : OUTPUT MANAGEMENT WEB VIEWER FOR ALL PLATFORMS
Previously there was one, and only one, DRAS server that could be configured to authenticate a user. If that DRAS was not available, but other DRAS's were available, they could not be used used due to this configuration limit.
Starting with Build 199, the user can choose the CCI/DRAS pair where the authentication takes place. This feature actually allows the user to use the LPAR where that user is defined to login to Web Viewer. On the login page, a drop down box is displayed if any of the LICENSE.DRASServerPN lines were added as shown below.
To configure this feature, the Web Viewer administrator must manually add all the appropriate line(s) to the WVPROFILE.PROPERTIES file.
According to the example in informational apar SI08800 HOW TO
ADD MORE AUTHENTICATION OPTIONS FOR LOGIN:
LICENSE.SystemID=<LPAR where license server is located>
LICENSE.DRASServer=<DRAS License Server Name>
LICENSE.DRASServerP1=<LPAR>:<DRAS Server Name>
You have to preface the DRAS name with the LPAR name for the P1 entry and any entry after that, but not for LICENSE.DRASServer=L2USDRAS.
