Issue64-bit (SID) type Software Token seeds not retained when using "Retain Token Information" option in RSA ACE/Server 5.2.1
A re-issued token where the checkbox "Retain Token Information" is selected creates an .SDTI file with a different seed record
Due to a bug, this feature does not work for 64-bit (SID) type software tokens
This issue has been corrected in a hot fix for RSA ACE/Server 5.2.1. Contact RSA Security Customer Support and request the hot fix B18031.
WorkaroundRSA ACE/Server 5.2 patch 1 includes the following enhancement:

42337 Enhanced the issuing of software tokens so that a token can be re-issued with the same token seed, allowing tokens to be used to authenticate against multiple RSA ACE/Servers.

Added a "Retain Token Information" button. Checking this button preserves the token seed when the token is re-issued.
