Why authentication failed every few minutes in RTC Client

Tanveer Zubair (211213) | asked Apr 12 '19, 1:07 p.m.
I am using RTC 6.0.6 client on Windows machine.
We are using ldap user id and pwd.
I changed my PC pass word few days ago and from that I facing a challenge.   This is for sure a local problem on my system only.   The overall CLM is working fine.

The RTC IDE is kicking me out every few minutes, looks like it is attempting re-authenticate me and very likely getting old pwd and failed.   It is very annoying and I have to login again again every few minutes. 

Any idea how to fix this issue.   I appreciate all.

Following instruction resolved my problem:

Try a new repository workspace.

Eclipse stores some data as mementos in the .metadata folder in the Eclipse workspace. That is where something went wrong. I would assume that the removal of the repository connection should have been enough. But maybe not.

  1. Delete the repository connection and recreate it again.
  2. Try a new repository workspace.
  3. Check the logs in the .metadata folder.
  4. Check the Java Version used by the client and update to a more current one.
