    Posted Jan 18, 2017 06:20 PM

    Trying to enable Wily SiteMinder Manager.

    Added the event handler "" (with Full path) using XPSConfig.

    When I start policy server, I see "XPS Auditing is enabled", but it don't load event handler library for Wily.  Not even giving any error.


    Platform details -


    OS - Solaris 11

    Policy Server - R12.52 SP1

    Hi Ujwol,


    I just ran that command.  Not seeing any ref for in xc.xml file.


    What does this mean?  Is there additional steps I need to do to add Event Handler for Wily?

    It means the changes you have done using XPSConfig to add the file is not saved.


    You should see it like this :


    <Product Name="SM">
    <ParameterName Name="DbTokenAdminName"/>
    <ParameterName Name="UDTimeoutODBCGlobal"/>
    <ParameterName Name="AccUdpPort"/>

    <ParameterName Name="ServerCmdDelay">10</ParameterName>
    <ParameterName Name="EventProvider">/F6/CA/siteminder/lib/,/F6/CA/siteminder/lib/</ParameterName>



    May be try again. 

    Did you press "q" at the end to save the changes.

    You will also need to restart the Policy server for the changes to be effective.

    The XPSConfig steps looks right.


    You can try modifying the xc.xml directly with the path to the and import using XPSImport.

    Policy server failing to load WILY Interscope library after upgrade policy server software to a newer CR


    [25136/1][Fri Dec 09 2016 10:51:21][SmEventWedge.cpp:289][LateInit][ERROR][sm-xpsxps-06810] Failed to initialize event handler library "/disk/apps/policyserver/siteminder/lib/libEventIntroscopep



    Policy server running on Solaris 10 integrated with WILY Introscope Enterprise Manager SiteMinderManager


    Failed to load library caused by upgrading policy server software from CR1 to CR5 - the install replaced libraries used/linked by SiteMinderManager.  The manager is used to capture data from the policy server, it then sends data Introscope Enterprise Manager





    Step 1 should already have been done, you can check this steps by reviewing the <Policy_Server_home>/siteminder/config/XPS.cfg



    Steps 2 And 3 will need to be redone

    To update Policy Server configuration, perform the following steps:

    1. Launch the XPSConfig to add one of the following files to the Event Handlers list:

    Navigate to the <policy server path>/bin directory and type ./XPSConfig and press ENTER. 

    System prompts for “Enter Option (id, L or Q):”.

    Type XPS and press ENTER.

    System prompts for “Enter Option (D, V, F, # or Q):”.

    Type 5 and press ENTER.

    System prompts for “Enter Option (CQ):”.

    Type C.

    You are asked to enter a new value.

    Enter the complete path for

    System prompts for “Enter Option (D, V, F, # or Q):”.

    Type Q.

    System prompts for “Enter Option (id, L or Q):”.

    Type Q.

    1. From the <installPath>/CAWilySiteMinderManager/

    SiteMinderManagerAgent directory, copy the to the policy server’s lib directory.

    1. From the <installPath>/CAWilySiteMinderManager/

    SiteMinderManagerAgent directory, copy the file to the policy server root directory. Thereafter, source it in the Policy Server profile file ca_ps_env.ksh using the complete path.


    For example, if SiteMinder Policy Server is installed in the /opt/netegrity/

    siteminder directory, add the following line to the SiteMinder Policy Server profile file

    . /opt/netegrity/siteminder/


    Support except of SMPS after following the steps above
