Description

I'm trying to import the ampolicy.smdif file in a new installation of SiteMinder Policy Server.

I'm running SiteMinder Policy Server with CA Directory 12 as Policy Store and getting the following errors when I import the ampoly.smdif file:

  <- Begin 
  E:\netegrity\siteminder\db\smdif>smobjimport -dsiteminder -wsiteminder -iampoly.smdif -l 
  Failed saving Variable object 1d-dad4d124-7518-4b67-b72c-b4ef76622eb3. Status: Unknown Failure'

  Potential Error: Cannot overwrite. 
  Log File ampolicy.log successfully created. 
  -> End 

Solution

This issue is because the Policy Store was not initialized properly.

For CA Directory r12 the following lines should be added at the end of the DSA's DXI file:

  # cache configuration 
  set max-cache-size = 100; 
  set cache-attrs = all-attributes; 
  set cache-load-all = true; +
  set ignore-name-bindings = true; 

For more information, please check the SiteMinder Policy Server Installation Guide R12 - Chapter 6: Configuring LDAP Directory Servers as a Policy or Key Store - CA Directory as a Policy Store pages 110 and 111.
