The account information for a secured connection is stored in two different places. You must update the account information in the Netcool Configuration tab of the Netcool Connector Configuration Utility and, if you are using a secured Netcool connection, you must also update the account information currently stored in AuthUserName and AuthPassword values in the C:\Program Files\NetIQ\AMNC\redist\AMNCServer.props file.
This error indicates a problem with the account specified for the Netcool User Info on the Netcool Configuration tab of the Netcool Connector Configuration Utility. This can either be a result of insufficient account permissions for this account to access the Netcool server, or a change in the username or password of the specified account.
This error can be replicated using C:\Program Files\NetIQ\AMNC\Netcool\bin\redist\isql.exe command:
isql -SServerGroup -Uuser -Ppassword
If this information is valid, you will receive a 1> prompt. If this account information is invalid you will receive the error:
