Issue/Introduction

I copied .dfo files from earlier solaris broker (ehrpitsun009) to new Redhat 8.4 broker server. But they are not working and giving below error.-

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Is there a way to decrypt these files again to get login id/password to  create again on linux or fix the copy

Resolution

DFO files are encrypted files containing userids and passwords.  These can be used for a variety of purposes with Harvest such as:

  • The "hsvr.dfo" file in the %CA_SCM_HOME% folder contains the login credentials Harvest needs to access the database.
  • Command line utilities in scripts and UDPs can use the "-eh" option along with the name of an encrypted DFO file to provide Harvest login credentials to the command.
  • Command line utilities in scripts and UDPs can use the "-er" option along with the name of an encrypted DFO file to provide login credentials for a remote agent computer to the command.
  • The hrefresh.cfg file will contain the names of encrypted DFO files for Harvest login and for remote agent login credentials.
  • The "-ldapbindpwfile=" option along with the name of an encrypted DFO file inside the HServer.arg file can be used to provide login credentials that allow Harvest to access the LDAP server for purposes of authenticating Harvest users.
