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.
