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

 

 

Cause

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

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

Environment

Release : 9.4

Component : APIGTW

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.
