Indentation issue after upgrade to version 4.1.2

CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM)


We are using PAM version 4.1.2 in our production environment having two clustered nodes 

After the upgrade users are complaining about the indentation issue when pasting the text to VI editor.

We have tried to increase/decrease the fonts and also used :set paste but issue is still exist, however, there is no issue while pasting the code from putty.


Release : 4.1, 4.1.1, 4.1.2, 4.1.3


Looks like this issue was caused by the terminal sends carriage return when one press Enter, and on Unix-like systems, the terminal driver translates that into line-feed ("newline”) which the mindterm cannot handle it. 


Make sure that the Target Linux Device is a supported OS.

The workaround is to define Putty as a TCP/UDP service and use this service for connecting to Linux Device.
