Issue/Introduction

When attempting to use custom certificates for EEM's 5250 port (https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article?articleId=18977), the configtool generates an error 

ConfigTool -munge -version 4.7.6.3 -comp igateway -conf igateway.conf -tag "TransportReceiver=HTTP;Connector=defaultport;certPW;" -passwd  <password for keystore>

Operation Failed!!
Error Message:Failed to parse conf file.

Cause

iGateway.conf file might have a missing tag name/value pairs,  example:

            <certType>p12</certType>
            <certURI>PFX_keystore.p12</certURI>
            <certPW></certPW>
            <keyURI>tomcat<keyURI>
            <keyPW></keyPW>

 

In the above, a syntax mistake with the <keyURI>     it is missing correct end of the tag, </keyURI>  

Resolution

Fix the wrong tags, to look like this and it repeat the configTool again         and it should now finish successfully.

ConfigTool -munge -version 4.7.6.3 -comp igateway -conf igateway.conf -tag "TransportReceiver=HTTP;Connector=defaultport;certPW;" -passwd  <password for keystore>

            <certType>p12</certType>
            <certURI>customer_keystore.p12</certURI>
            <certPW>Dx4PGgIWHUQ=</certPW>
             <keyURI/>
            <keyPW/>

 

If the keystore has the certificate in an alias called tomcat,   the keyURI should be tomcat  and keyPW  would be the password for that alias (normally key password is same as keytore's password)

ConfigTool -munge -version 4.7.6.3 -comp igateway -conf igateway.conf -tag "TransportReceiver=HTTP;Connector=defaultport;keyPW;" -passwd  <password for alias  listed in keyURI>

            <certType>p12</certType>
            <certURI>customer_keystore.p12</certURI>
            <certPW>Dx4PGgIWHUQ=</certPW>
            <keyURI>tomcat</keyURI>
            <keyPW>Dx4PGgIWHUQ=</keyPW>
