ARERR 219009 when logging in
You might see the following error when logging in to BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management:
call: getListEntryWithFields(), TableName: Location, Class:com.bmc.cloud.model.beans.Location. Server response authenticity for login type IMPERSONATE cannot be validated (ARERR 219009)
Consider the following causes and solutions for this error:
SuperUser Password Mismatch.
While installing Platform Manager through the Install Planner, the Install Planner asks for the Super User password. This is encrypted and stored in the
Platform ManagerMachine/BMC Software/BMCCloudLifecycleManagement/Platform Manager/Configuration/Cloudservices.jsonfile on the Platform Manager server. The Install Planner also asks for the Super User password while installing Cloud Portal on the Enterprise AR System Server. This password should be same as the one given while installing Platform Manager. If there is a mismatch, then the Cloud Administrator Console will fail with an IMPERSONATE error. The Super User password specified while installing Cloud Portal is encrypted and stored in the
CMF:PluginConfigurationform on the Enterprise AR System Server.
The User account is not properly populated in the Cloud AR System instance.
Verify that the User account exists in the Cloud AR System instance. The user should also be granted a fixed license. If they are out of sync, edit the record in the Enterprise AR System Server and verify that the record is updated in the Cloud AR System Server.
If the records do not sync, make sure there are available fixed user licenses on the Cloud AR System Server, and confirm that DSO is working properly.
Typical entries in the
csm.logfile for this usecase would be

Authentication failed
Changing the Demo Password
Changing the Demo Password without updating the Demo Password in BMC Network Automation, BMC Server Automation and Platform Manager can also trigger the IMPERSONATE error. Update the Demo password in the following locations:
BMC Server Automation—Navigate to Configuration > Atrium Integration > Configuration. If the Demo user is specified here, amend the password accordingly.
BMC Network Automation—Navigate toAdmin > System Parameters, under Enable CMDB Integration, if the Demo user is specified here, amend the password accordingly.
Log into the Platform Manager server and open the
PlatformManagerMachine/BMC Software/BMCCloudLifeCycleManagement/Platform_Manager/configuration. Search for Database(AR) Server User and Database(AR) User. If this user is "Demo", then search for Database(AR) Server Password and Database(AR) Password. You will need to change the attributeValue entry to the new encrypted password. Ensure that the AR Server names are set properly in the
cloudservices.jsonfile and they are resolvable by the Platform Manager server. For example, search for "ar-server-hostname" in the
cloudservices.jsonfile and replace that with the AR System Server Machine name.
Mismatched number of AR User fixed licenses between Enterprise AR System and Cloud AR System.
The number of AR fixed Licenses should be same on Enterprise AR System and Cloud AR System.
Also if the following error is received in the
csm.logfile, increase the number of AR User Fixed Licenses in Enterprise AR System and Cloud AR System. This causes the user account to be populated as expected and users will then be able to access the Cloud Portal successfully.

The Atrium Web Registry instance may be having issues.
Restart the Atrium Web Registry services and clear all browser caches while it is stopped.
- BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management services have been restarted in an improper sequence. See Knowledge Article KA361139 for the correct sequence.
BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management has been installed on a single server and that server is rebooted.
In such a case all the services will be started at the same time and Cloud Portal will reflect the error. A Workaround is to restart the Platform Manager services in such a deployment after server has been rebooted. Another workaround is to create a script that delays the Platform Manager services startup so that other services are started before the Platform Manager service starts.
In some cases, if the database server is out of disk space and the Database is configured with AR System Servers, we can see this error in the Cloud Portal.
- Check for connectivity issues between Enterprise AR System and Platform Manager.
- MAC ID changes on a VM can also cause the error. For example, Amazon instances are prone to encounter this issue frequently.
