Policy Manager 12.6.1 corrupts Fireware 11.7.4 config
A client is on an XTM 25 running 11.7.3 (upgrading to a T20 SOON). I am unable to open his config in PM 12.5.3 or 12.6.1 and then save it without it corrupting the file's password length, change them from 32 to 97 characters without any config changes being made. All I have to do is connect, download the config in PM 12.6.1 and save it, and POOF!...97-character password hashes. Both configs were opened in Notepad++ to compare them.
The XTM 25 won't save the changes to the box using either PM 11.7.4 or 12.6.1 after that happens, and it gets this error:
Error communicating with Firebox x.x.x.x
INTERNAL_ERROR: Error Line 12: The element "password" has a length of 97, which exceeds the maximum length of 32.
Why can't 12.6.1 manage Fireware 11.7.3? It has the OS Compatibility set to 11.4 - 11.8.x so it should work.
