2556752 - ERROR: The argument has an invalid value (FWM 02024) when performing AddNode or Manage Servers from CCM


  • When creating a new node using AddNode in the Central Configuration Manager (CCM) the following errors occur:
    ERROR: The argument has an invalid value (FWM 02024)
    ERROR: AddNode - Could not log into CMS "<HOST>:6400" with the provided credentials. Ensure that the CMS name, port number, and credentials are correct. (FWM 23002)

  • When prompted to provide credentials for the Central Management Server (CMS), it can be seen that the 'Authentication' drop down which normally displays 'Enterprise' is blank, and enterprise is missing. It is also greyed out and unselectable / unchangeable, so a value cannot be selected

  • This error also appears when logging in through CCM -> Manage Servers

  • When manually entering 'Enterprise' into the Authentication field and attempting to connect, we get the below error:
    Internal error: Unable to initialize the sessions
    Internal Error: Unable to initialize the session manager
