RTC 5.0.2 IBM i build agent authentication failed


Jon Dockter (61) | asked May 27 '15, 10:53 a.m.
I'm working with an RTC 5.0.2 AIX server that supports SCM and builds.  My org has many apps that run on iSeries so we want to extend the build process to those apps.  I started down the road of installing the build toolkit 5.0.2 on our iSeries dev box, running V7R1, resource ID 5750CL2 with options *BASE and 3 which is the toolkit.  I got the build agent running on the iSeries dev box under my ID 'jdockter' and the default port 6666.  However my build agent build engine back on the AIX RTC server that connects to the iSeries build agent gives me an authentication error, ie AUTH Unable to set user account to *AuthUnknownUser ("jdockter") Authentication Failed.  I ran the telnet test, where xxxxxxx is my real password, and got the following error message...

200 HELLO - BuildForge Agent v8.0.0.1-1-0021

username jdockter
password xxxxxxxx
cmd ping
go
320 AUTH AuthFail[*AuthUnknownUser,"jdockter"]
                                              251 RESULT 1
                                                          260 EOR
 
The logging also confirmed the same message...

Is there something I'm missing for my 'jdockter' id to give it authority to connect to the build agent on the iSeries?

It seems that I have resolved the issue by updating the bfagent.conf to use the magic_login attribute with my ID and a encrypted password based on this tech note http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21295611...for example

magic_login jdockter:e5939b63015fe7e64ce884ee04b7ae6e786c1aea58d58084

I'm not longer getting the error, but rather get this response...

Connection test started...
