You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When running the manageprofiles command, profilePath related
    error messages can occur for numerous reasons. Unfortunately,
    the same generic message is generated which is of minimal use
    in problem determination.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The manageprofiles related logs         *
    *                      contain insufficient information to     *
    *                      effectively debug profile path errors.  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Profile path related errors can occur for a variety of
    reasons. Related logfiles however only contain a generic
    "Profile path is invalid" message.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Additional profile path related tracing has been added to the
    manageprofiles logs. Specifically, specified or defaulted
    profile path values referencing non-empty or non-writeable
    locations, or values specifying an invalid drive letter (on
    Microsoft Windows operating systems), are now traced with
    sufficient detail for problem resolution.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.43, 8.0.0.13 and 8.5.5.10.  Please refer to
