Access Manager 7 2005Q4 patch 1 (revision 01) fixed a number of problems, as listed in the README file included with the patch. Patch 1 also includes the following new features and known issues:
Access Manager debug files are created by default in the debug directory, even when com.iplanet.services.debug.level property in the AMConfig.properties file is set to error. Before Access Manager 7 patch 1 was released, a debug file was created only when the first debug message was logged to the file.
Access Manager 7 patch 1 adds support for roles and filtered roles in the LDAPv3 plug-in, if the data is stored in Sun Java System Directory Server. For more information, see Document the roles and filtered roles support for LDAPv3 plug-in (6365196).
The com.iplanet.am.session.client.polling.enable property in the AMConfig.properties file on the server side is set to false by default and should never be reset to true.
If the password encryption key contains spaces, applying the patch fails.
Workaround. Use a new encryption key that includes no spaces. For the detailed steps to change the encryption key, see: Appendix B, Changing the Password Encryption Key, in Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Deployment Planning Guide.
