Symptoms

On ODI 11.1.1.7.0 version when attempting to run pasteConfig following the documents below,

https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E29542_01/core.1111/e10105/testprod.htm#CHDDCBGI

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23943_01/core.1111/e10105/clone.htm#CACHHDID

the pasteconfig step fails with the following error:

Our test case shows plain text password works. We used plain password everywhere (same password.txt used for accessing domain and ODI Repositories, the password.txt has the password, welcome1 in there,
and our pasteConfig was successful.)

The issue is with encrypted password produced by running obfuscate.sh.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. copyBinary (succeeds)
2. pasteBinary (succeeds)
3. copyConfig (succeeds)
4. pasteConfig (fails) 

Due to this issue, a copy of an ODI environment cannot be completed.
