Issue/Introduction

A user logs in on the main TPX panel, enters an incorrect PW, but does not see any message appear on the screen indicating what the  problem is, why?

Environment

Release : 5.4

 

Resolution

The panel attributes were changed, the vertical bar was changed to an '&', so the vertical bar could be used in the logo.

An "&" must not be used as attribute character, since it is a variable indicator. 
 

Once the vertical bar was put back as an attribute, a message is returned when an incorrect password is entered:

TSS7101E Password is Incorrect
