Error description

  • Customer needs to modify plugin parameters via administrative
    console
    
    Customer wants to modify PostSizeLimit parameter for a specific
    application server via the administrative console.
    
    Servers -> Web Servers -> "Server Name" -> Plugin Properties ->
    Request
    Routing -> Maximum size of request content
    
    When customer configures a value in "Maximum size of request
    content" and regenerates plugin, these value is applied to all
    clusters.
    
    Customer wants this change to only affect a particular cluster.
    
    This was allowed with verison 5.0 but has been removed with
    follow on releases.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V6.1 and V7.0                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: PostSizeLimit Plugin property           *
    *                      requires a manual change if different   *
    *                      values are required between 2 or more   *
    *                      clusters                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    PostSizeLimit is set through web server section of the
    administrative console.  Therefore, every cluster associated
    to the same web server will the same value.  To affect a
    different value to only one of the clusters requires a manual
    change.
    

Problem conclusion

  • An overridePluginPostSizeLimit property has been created to
    override the value set within the web server > plugin
    properties area.  This property is set within the
    Administrative Console Servers > Server Types > WebSphere
    Application Servers > [servername] > Web Container > custom
    properties.  The [servername] can be for any member of the
    cluster. Add the overridePluginPostSizeLimit name and give it
    a value.
    
    Other overridePlugin properties were added at the same time to
    provide additional control to Cluster properties that are
    traditionally set globally.  Each can be set the same way as
    noted above.
    
    overridePluginPostBufferSize
    overridePluginLoadBalance
    overridePluginPostSizeLimit
    overridePluginRemoveSpecialHeaders
    overridePluginRetryInterval
    overridePluginGetDWLMTable
    overridePluginIgnoreAffinityRequest
    overridePluginCloneSeparatorChange
    
    This can also be set using wsadmin.  The following are the
    commands to accomplish this.
    
    Open a command prompt and changed directories to my Dmgr/bin
    directory (c:\program files\websphere
    x\AppServer\profiles\Dmgr\bin)
    Start wsadmin using that dmgr's soap port (wsadmin -conntype
    SOAP [-port abcd] -lang jacl)
    
    wsadmin> set server_id [$AdminConfig getid
    /Node:NodeXYZ/Server:server1]
    wsadmin> set webcontainer [$AdminConfig list WebContainer
    $server_id]
    wsadmin> $AdminConfig create Property $webcontainer {{name
    new_name} {value new_value}} properties
    wsadmin> $AdminConfig save
    To display the web container values, use the following command:
    wsadmin> $AdminConfig show $webcontainer
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 6.1.0.35 & 7.0.0.13.  Please refer to the Recommended
