    APS aka Advanced Password Service is now bundled with CA SiteMinder Policy Server installer from R12.5 and is selected as default option (instead of Basic Password Services).

    But many of our customer wouldn't need APS and would like to instead use the traditional Basic Password Services.


    Here is a simple way to disable APS if it has been mistakenly chosen during Policy server installation.


    Option 1:


    1. Re-run Policy server configuration wizard.
    2. In the first screen, don't' choose to configure any of the features/components. (unselect all check box)
    3. in the second screen choose Basic password Services (instead of the default Advanced password Services )

    Option 2:

    1. Stop Policy Server
    2. Rename SMAPS.dll from SiteMinder bin folder ( from SiteMinder lib folder in Linux )
    3. Rename APS.cfg from SiteMinder bin folder
    4. Restart Policy Server
