Issue/Introduction

Gateway and Single SignOn registration has a defect when adding a new policy server. The registration does not populate additional policy servers in the host configuration object. This affects new registration and when re-registration is performed. 

For re-registration if additional policy servers have been added they get removed setting it back to one

see example :

Before the re-Registration
 
The information and values about :
 
Address
Authentication.port
Authorization.port
connection.max
connection.min
connection.step
timeout
 
are present on the screen above.
 
After re-Registration
 
 
Note : The information about :
Address
Authentication.port
Authorization.port
connection.max
connection.min
connection.step
timeout
 
are missed on the screen above
 
So , to recover that info need to apply the workaround suggested as solution

 



Environment

Release : 9.4

Component : APIGTW

Cause

The registration does not populate additional policy servers in the host configuration object.

This affects new registration and when re-registration is performed. 

Resolution

 Procedure to export the siteminder_configuration_property data table from the mysql ssg db, then restore it after Single Sign On registration configuration.

 
Dump and restore a single table from .sql Dump :

1. To export the siteminder config run this command (this is the dump process), need to run from linux gateway terminal mode:
 
mysqldump -u root -p ssg siteminder_configuration_property > ssg.siteminder_configuration_property.sql

2. to Restore tables in one line run this command from the gateway server terminal mode:

mysql -u root -p ssg < ssg.siteminder_configuration_property.sql
 
this will re-create the data into the siteminder_configuration_property table to have the same data as Before the Registration process.
