RSA Authentication Manager 6.1
IssueApplying new replica package to RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 causes 'Invalid Path' error
Error: "Invalid Path (Error 10) sdrepnodes.txt file not valid"
The error occurs while applying a new replica package on the replica server.  After browsing and pointing to the location of the Replica_Package folder on the Replica server, the following error occurs:  "Invalid path: Invalid replica package: sdrepnodes.txt file has invalid format. (10)." 
Replica package cannot be applied even after creating a new replica package on the primary server and copying across to the replica server.
CauseThe 'Service Name' field for the Primary Server is blank within the RSA Authentication Manager Replica Information window.  The Windows 'services' file has not propagated it's Service Name to the Service Name field of the RSA Authentication Replica Information window.
Resolution

- View the 'winnt\system32\drivers\etc\services' file on the Primary Authentication Manager server and find the Service Name which corresponds to the TCP port that is displayed in the Replica Information window for the Primary Server.   Enter this 'Service Name' to the 'Service Name' field within RSA Authentication Manager Replica Information window which is currently blank. 

- Create a new Replica Package on the Primary server and copy the directory and sub-directories to an empty directory on the Replica Server

- Apply the new Replica Package by browsing to this directory and the error will not appear and replica package will be applied.
