Issue/Introduction

The CA Identity Manager Password Sync Agent (PSA) is logging the error message below:


20200903.00:25:58. TID=1998. ! Information: Password Sync. Agent gave up waiting for a reply from eTrust Admin Server for 'RAIN2'.
            Reported from: .\pswdntfy.cpp:414.
            Reason: Timeout expired during 'modify' request. eTrust Admin Server is likely too busy to respond.

Environment

Release : 14.x

Component : IdentityMinder(Identity Manager)

Resolution

The Message reported by the PSA (Password Sync Agent) is an INFORMATION message and not an error.   It means the eTAdmin server was not been able to process a change request in the time defined in the configuration file ('eta_pwdsync.conf').



If this is a one-off issue, you may not need to do anything, but if these issues persist you can increase the 'Timeout' in the configuration file as follows:

[Timeout] password_update_timeout=5

This value may need to be fine-tuned according to eTAdmin server performance.


Note:

If your AD domain contains several Domain Controllers we would recommend that you add the following part for all installed PSAs.

[Server] machine_account=no

This stops the PSA from managing account password synchronization between DC's themselves.
