Error description

  • The IBM HTTP Server could initialize successfully but the
    WebSphere plugin could fail to initialize.  This could make
    the IHS unusable.  Currently the system operator would not
    know that the plugin failed without looking in filesystem log
    files.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of Apache based IBM WebSphere     *
    *                  Application Server Plugin for V7.0 and      *
    *                  above running on z/OS.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The WebSphere HTTP Plugin could fail    *
    *                      to initialize without the operator      *
    *                      realizing it, because the web server    *
    *                      could still start successfully.         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The IBM Http Server(IHS) could successfully start but the
    WebSphere HTTP Plugin could fail to initialize.  This would
    create a situation where the web server could accept requests
    but not handle any requests normally processed by the
    WebSphere Plugin.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere HTTP Plugin will now write the
    following message to the z/OS console if it fails to initialize.
    PLGC1001E: WebSphere HTTP Plugin failed to initialize.
    The message is issued via a consople service and therefore
    will prefixed with message number BPXM023I and the userid the
    webserver is running under. For example:
    BPXM023I (WASTST1) PLGC1001E: WebSphere HTTP Plugin failed to
    initialize
    
    APAR PI28074 is currently targeted for inclusion in Fix Packs
    7.0.0.37, 8.0.0.11, and 8.5.5.5 of WebSphere Application Server
    on z/OS.
