Starting Enterprise Dashboard using SSL and get the below error:

Caused by: java.io.IOException: Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect

Cause

Certain special characters in the password is causing this error.

Environment

Release : 10.5

Component : CA Service Virtualization

Resolution

DevTest does not like the following special characters in keystore passwords: /, \, %

When creating the keystore passwords for DevTest, do not use these characters.

Use this rule when creating any keystore password on DevTest regardless of component.

Additional Information

For DevTest 10.6.0 and later, please check to see if there is a JAVA_HOME set and to what the value is. 

Starting with DevTest 10.6.0, we use OpenJDK, and sometimes it cannot affect keystores and truststores created with a different version of Java.  They will as well get this error.
