GF 3.1.2 build 14, Win 2008 machine. Executed the follow command:
asadmin create-node-dcom --nodehost localhost qq
remote failure: Missing Windows password. If you are using asadmin, specify the
remote Windows password in a file as follows:
Specify the path of the password file to asadmin with the --passwordfile (or -W)
Command create-node-dcom failed.
Before in this case, the AS_ADMIN_WINDOWSPASSWORD was asked two times. Now it was not asked at all. I believe that, as for any other GF existent passwords, the AS_ADMIN_WINDOWSPASSWORD has to be asked one time, if it was not provided in the passwordfile.
