*** File Manager Initialization failed ***
Reason :Error downloading information from Agile.

The failure could be attributed to:

4. ifsuser username/password may not be correct.

Steps to Reproduce

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Refresh Agile Application Server environment
  2. Login to Java Client as admin user, and update File Manager
  3. Start File Manager Server


- File Manager URL in Java Client and server.conf is correct
- ifsuser password is correctly encrypted in server.conf
- AGILEUSER table is present in Agile database
- Run agile9_check.sql and confirm no error is reported in _agile9_check.log
- File Manager is running on the same machine with Agile Application Server
- LDAP configuration is enabled in Java Client, and if the LDAP configuration is disabled, File Manager can start up
