Cause

The /siteminder/config/XPS.cfg file had incorrect owner/permissions.

Environment

Release : ALL

Component : SITEMINDER -POLICY SERVER

Resolution

Adjusting the XPS.cfg file owner/permissions to match those of the other files in the /config folder allowed the XPSConfig program to run without errors.
