E-AD: PT 8.53 - 3 tier DomainConfigurationPwd connection considerations - "The Tuxedo Authentication Password is invalid"

(Doc ID 1530263.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 09, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.53 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The default DEMO installation for tools 8.53 or a Virtual Image box with 8.53 might set the DomainConfigurationPwd having as value PS (2 chars long password) in the case an older PT 8.52 psappsrv.cfg template was used

To connect Appdesigner in 3 tier on client you will need to use the Configuration Manager and edit the default profile (or create a new profile) where to add this password

But if one tries to use this PS old “default password”  in Configuration Manager, this would be rejected with the following error message:



+    Workstation Configuration Error                                                                        


+    The  Tuxedo Authentication Password is invalid. Please enter a Tuxedo

+    Authentication Password between 8 and 30 characters.


+    Please correct before installing workstation
