    A NullPointerException is thrown after trying to restart the
    server if the servlet caching is enabled. There is a problem
    when trying to authenticate.
    

Problem conclusion

  • When servlet caching is enabled, an attempt was made to access
    the DynaCache before it was completely initialized. Checks are
    added in place to ensure that the DynaCache is not accessed
    unless complete initialized.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.35, 8.0.0.10 and 8.5.5.4.  Please refer to the
