Issue/Introduction

We are having difficulty with validating authentication from Azure to SiteMinder using OpenID and we are observing below errors in the Policy server trace:

[02/17/2020][15:43:21.431][1044][7436][Sm_Auth_Message.cpp:4835][CSm_Auth_Message::SendReply][** Status: Not Authenticated.

 We have the session store enabled.  I can connect to it through the SiteMinder management console and through ODBC.  Is there a way to validate that the session store is working correctly? 

 

Cause

The Policy Server was not restarted after configuring and enabling the Session Store

Resolution

Restarting the Policy Server after configuring and enabling the session store resolved the issue.
