Question : cwbsy1008 General security error
The backstory: I recently set up a new system and installed IBM’s iSeries client access for our AS400 and the little puppy doesn’t work.
Error message: cwbsy1008 General security error occured rc=000
Symptoms: If you’re logged into the machine as admin, any user can then log into the AS400.
If a user is logged into the machine, then no one can log into the AS400 and they get the error message above. This looks like a problem with the local machine and not the AS400.
Troubleshooting: I checked permissions on the IBM directory and they look good.
Uninstall and reinstall of the application produced the same results.
Setup: Windows XP Professional on a domain.
Domain users are members of the power users group.
This build of iSeries access is working great on dozens of other computers.
Any suggestions on what a guy can try?
Solution: cwbsy1008 General security error
Here’s what I did: I gave the user local rights, installed the app, then took the rights away. This gets them going for now. It’s jsut a workaround rather than a fix, but it at least prevents me from pitching the computer into the river. I would still be interested in a real fix if anyone has something they can pitch my way.
