APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a keystore file is not placed under the node name
    directory, the deleteKeyStore command failed.  For example,
    when a keystore file is located at
    <profile_name>/config/cells/<cell_name>/nodes/myTest-key.p12,
    the deleteKeyStore command failed with following error:
    
    Unable to get the repository context for
    <profile_name>/config/cells/<cell_name>/nodes/myTest-key.p12
    

Local fix

  • remove keystore from the filesystem and manually remove its
    entry from security.xml

Problem conclusion

  • It is valid to configure a keystore at a location other than
    the specific node name directory.  The keystore path should be
    processed as a regular file system file.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.33, 8.0.0.9, and 8.5.5.3.  Please refer to the
