During startup, the driver will try to set a password on the OnBoarding job for the Permission Collection and Reconciliation Service, and after Identity Manager 4.0.2 Engine and Remote Loader Patch 7 the following can be seen in the driver log when the driver is starting:

 : LDAP Driver PT:      Action: do-set-local-variable("setNamedPwd",scope="policy",arg-object(token-xpath("jcmd:commandLine(string($SETPWDCMD))"))).
 : LDAP Driver PT:        arg-object(token-xpath("jcmd:commandLine(string($SETPWDCMD))"))

This is a cosmetic error, the password is being set on the Onboarding Job configuration.

Additional Information

It is possible to use DxCMD to check that the password has been set:

-> 7: Job operations...
-> 2: Operations on a specific job object...
-> Select the PermissionOnbording.<driver>.<driverset> job
-> 6: Passwords operations
-> 3: List named passwords
if 'ua-password' is listed, then the password have been set.
