Solution:

In the UPM Administration tab->DSM, correct the following items:

  1. Web Service URL - The value of the WAC_URL appearing in file C:\Program Files\CA\DSM\Web Console\webapps\wac\WEB-INF\classes\com\ca\wac\config\wacconfig.properties has to be pasted in here.

  2. DSM User name has to be modified to use the following correct format:
    winnt://<itcm_manager>/<username>

  3. The user configured in step 2, should have enough rights in ITCM (see ITCM security profiles).
