When executing a VCM Utility command were the password is provided by the –PwdFile parameter the following error message is displayed:
Log file started: C:\Documents and Settings\\VCMUtility.log Connecting to StarTeam server Error: StarTeam logon failed: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The specified password is invalid; the maximum password length is 127 UTF-8 characters.
This is as designed. The –PwdFile parameter works for STCMD but not the VCM Utility. A change request has been logged to include the –PwdFile parameter in a future version of the VCM Utility.
