ERROR: open attack IP file

You may panic looking at this error in your Tuxedo log:
ERROR: open attack IP file (<PS_CONFIG_HOME>/appserv/<DOMAIN-NAME>:<PS_HOME>/bin/.wsattacklist) failed at write, ignore block check.

You will see actual values instead of variables used like PS_CONFIG_HOME, PS_HOME and DOMAIN-NAME.

The error has some text, which can cause panic to set in, but I hope that is not the case because the root cause and solution are usually simple.

Root Cause:

Usually the cause of the issue is a wrong “Domain Connection Password”.

Solution:

To resolve the issue, please do the following steps:

  1. Whatever is your “Domain Connection Password”, take a not of the same.
  2. Reconfigure your appserver domain and provide the same password.
  3. Make sure that the configuration.properties files is using the same password (configuration.properties file is present at <PIA_HOME>/webserv/<DOMAIN-NAME>/applications/peoplesoft/PORTAL.war/WEB-INF/psftdocs/<PIASITE>/ )
  4. Restart the domains if the need be.
  5. Test again

Hopefully that error has gone away from the logs.
