Environment:
IM 12.6 SPx
Cause:

This error (com.netegrity.llsdk6.imsimpl.passwordservices.PasswordBlobImpl.createBlobFromText(PasswordBlobImpl.java:66) ) would normally be related to SiteMinder integration. While the integration does not have to be currently in place, it usually refers to a Corporate Directory which used in any previous IM/SM integration.

Resolution:

Normally, clearing the %PASSWORD_DATA% attribute for a user which triggers this error would resolve it (this would have to be done per user). This can be done via any LDAP browser, such as JXplorer.
%PASSWORD_DATA% is a metadata attribute, so while it does not contain the actual current password, it does contain information about the passwords and it is used for tracking purposes (as configured in the password policy).

It is always advised to take backup of the directory before any mass change is to be applied.
