Hi,

I have been trying to run an application (a jar) which contains classes, some other jar libraries and also 2 conf files including auth.conf.

I have also stored this auth.conf file in a temp dir in C drive - "C:\test\auth.conf"

But when I try to run this program at the command prompt with the command

java -jar LsfMonitor.jar -Djava.security.auth.login.config="C:\test\auth.conf"

I get the following error!!!



Unable to locate a login configuration

I don't understand why it says unknown source when I have specified where the auth.conf file is.

I have tried everything...copied the auth.conf in java home directory, in the jar file, changed the java security policy file and security file but to no avail !!

The contents of the auth.conf file is this :-

myapp{
com.platform.drm.loginmodules.LSFLoginModule required debug=true;
};



If anyone could help me I would be very grateful! Its stressing me out!
