Symptoms

ENVIRONMENT
=================
PeopleTools 8.56.09

OS: Linux x86-64 Red Hat Enterprise 7


When attempting to create an app server domain the psappsrv.cfg was  getting corrupted, special characters being appended after the parameters values

ERROR
=======
[UseLocalOracleDB] has invalid value. Please correct in psappsrv.cfg file

Value entered does not pass the validation test.
Maximum length allowed is 1


[Connection Pooling] has invalid value. Please correct in psappsrv.cfg file

Value entered does not pass the validation test.
Maximum length allowed is 1

[Dynamic Update os Certificates] has invalid value. Please correct in psappsrv.cfg file

Value entered does not pass the validation test
Maximum length allowed is 1

Error returned from ValidateCfgFile. See lines just above with more specific info

UBGEN encountered an error while configuring!


STEPS
======
Try to create the application server domain:

1) navigate to PS_HOME/appserv
2) issue psadmin

3) choose option 1) Application server;
4) choose option 2) Create a domain

 


Moreover, if one edits the psappsrv.cfg manually deleting the special chars, then the domain creation process is not creating a PSTUXCFG. Hence in that case the error is "PSTUXCFG not found", no PSTUXCFG found under PS_HOME. Even if deleting the special characters,  when one uses the option 4 in psadmin in order to configure the domain, it is again adding the special characters

and erroring out  with the same "...invalid value. Please correct in psappsrv.cfg file

Value entered does not pass the validation test.
Maximum length allowed is 1"

1) navigate to PS_HOME/appserv
2) issue psadmin
3) Choose option 1) administer a domain
                          4) Configure this domain
                        14) Load config as shown
