Release : 8.51

Component : UIM - VMWARE


- Unknown


The only real change we made was to change the userid to all lowercase (us\us_xxxx_nimsoft_xxx), and the userid vaue IS case-sensitive. Previously it was set to: us\us_xxxx_NimSoft_xxx.

The login/API connectivity errors/issues were either caused by changes to Loadbalancer settings, e.g., sticky sessions or some aspect of SAML - unknown since admins did not divulge what had been changed. After a discussion with the UIM admin, the login issues subsided and there was consistent connectivity.
