After upgrading the Siteminder Policy Server to r12.8.6/r12.8.6a XPSSweeper crashes/core dumps.
Release : 12.8.06/r12.8.6a
There are some additional XPS Data Dictionary objects added in 12.8.6/r12.8.6a. XPSSweeper on r12.8.6/r12.8.6a encounters an unhandled exception when run against an r12.8.5 and older Policy Store where with the older version of the XPS Data Dictionary.
