    ****************************************************************
    If you try to stop an application that is mapped to both
    an application server and a web server, an extraneous message
    is shown. This happens because it is considering
    the status of the web server in the situation, which it should
    not. Only the status (stopped/started) of the application
    server should affect whether the application can be started or
    stopped.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code has been changed to only consider the status of the web
    server in this situation.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.41, 8.0.0.13, and 8.5.5.9.  Please refer to
