Issue/Introduction

When a user attempts to log in, if they have a valid LDAP username, the login will be successful regardless of password.

Cause

Invalid PASSWORD EXIT configuration. 

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

If a password exit is configured on the system, please check that the return codes of the exit are as expected (i.e. that it is not returning a RC of 0 on failed password).

If no password exit is configured, reboot the Automation Engine.
