Error description

  • When the ServerName directive is updated with http:// or
    https:// in front of the hostname in the Administrative console
    under Web servers > webserver_definition > Global Directives,
    the ServerName directive is prefixed with #ERROR#.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1) From the administrative console navigate to
    Web servers > webserver_definition > Global Directives
    
    2) Change the Server Name to:  http://server.ibm.com:80
    3) Click OK to save, then Propagate the change to the web server
    4) From Web servers > webserver_definition click the Edit
    button next to http.conf to view the file.
    5) Scroll to the ServerName directive which is incorrectly
    updated as #ERROR# ServerName http://server.ibm.com:80 instead
    of ServerName http://server.ibm.com:80.
    
    The problem does not cause a start or stop problem with the
    IBM Http Server.
    WebSphere Application Server v7, v8.0 and 8.5 are affected.
    

Local fix

  • Manually edit the httpd.conf file and remove #ERROR# from the
    front of the ServerName directive.
    Save the httpd.conf file and restart the server.
