If a wrong password is specified in the uc4config.xml of APM (Automic Package Manager), the APM still tries to connect to all configured CPs with these wrong or empty credentials. A misleading error message about missing VARAs is given, e.g.
Checking Pack installation variable PCK_DB.PRV.INSTALLED_PACKAGES...
PROBLEM: Object not found: PCK_DB.PRV.INSTALLED_PACKAGES (SYS:NO:IPV)
DESCRIPTION: Installed Pack variable object PCK_DB.PRV.INSTALLED_PACKAGES is missing
instead of a meaningful message like "Wrong username or password".
Using LDAP-Users, this can result in the user being locked out of the Active Directory.
An issue has been fixed where the Package Manager tried to connect to all configured CPs even if the credential was invalid. If a wrong password was specified, it could lock the user out of the active directory after a couple of wrong login attempts.
