Issue/Introduction

After changing the admin's user password on CA Performance Center because it is expired, the OIConnector cannot connect to CAPC anymore.

In the OIconnector log can see these messages:
....
ERROR [2020-11-27 12:42:12,213] [WrapperSimpleAppMain] [OIIntegration] - [EVENT UNSPECIFIED Anonymous:[email protected] -> /com.ca.im.oinet.connector.OIIntegration] No response from webservice - unable to configure data sources

and in PCService.log on CAPC server:
....

Cause

Changing the password on CAPC side will brake the connection between OIConnector and CAPC because the new password is not getting changed on the OIConnector_installation\conf\config.xml file.

 

Environment

Release : 20.2

DIGITAL OPERATIONAL INTELLIGENCE - 1.3.2, 20.2

IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

There is a password hash in the OIConnector_installation\conf\config.xml file forthe CAPC user and password. This needs to be updated accordingly.

Use an "Encode/Decode" tool to encode the new password from CAPC and paste that encoded password in the OIConnector config.xml file. For example this tool can be used:
