Error seen in IM messages
Applied nimbus.dll from below KB

After applying the patch the error messages are not seen in IM but database password goes blank in data_engine probe gui


Release : 20.1

Component : UIM - DATA_ENGINE
Infrastructure Manager


Workaround is to install IM on a separate machine. i.e non hub if want to see password field populated in data_engine gui

There are some issues with decrypting the password with new nimbus.dll form VB GUI (certain combinations of characters in password) the password is not visible. 

Although the password field is blank in GUI, it has been picked up by the data_engine probe correctly and there is no issue with database connection and the connection to the database is successful.

Also as the password is masked even if it is visible, it provides no additional value and hence the impact is very low.

As of now there is no active development of IM GUI taking place but could change in future .
