Issue/Introduction

When trying to connect ARD 3.0 and above to TDMService, getting error message Fault Code Soap Env:Server java.lang.NullPointerException

Cause

In the TDM Service log file it is seen that mac address is null.

AuthenticateUser - userName: username, osUser: , macAddress: , application: 

Because the mac address value is null, this is causing the exception to occur.  

With ARD 3.0 there is no more license key and the mac address is no longer required/captured.  

Environment

Component : CA Test Data Manager - 4.9

Component: ARD - 3.0

This issue has been fixed in TDMWeb-4.9.53.0 and above.
