    HI All,


    I have installed policy server 12.51 and configured the CA Directory as policy store. Set the new password for "siteminder" super user account using ./smreg -su


    I have installed admin UI, and able to access it.


    I tried to register it using XPSRegClient

    ./XPSRegClient siteminder:<password> -adminui-setup


    After this when i tried to access the admin UI to complete the first time registration, always it is getting failed. error is "Error: Invalid user name and password combination" where as password is correct.


    Can anyone suggest, what is wrong here.

       CentOS is not supported platform for siteminder Adminui, So I think you should use the recommended OS for using Adminui/policy server.

    Not sure if This will really help you but have a look at the below KB article:

    The issue got fixed after i increased the entopy using the below commands.


    mv /dev/random /dev/

    ln -s /dev/urandom /dev/random



    start the policy server

    increase the entopy

    run the XPSRegClient

    start the application server

    access the admin UI in browser and complete the first time registration.
