APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In the Websphere Application Server for z/OS the
    <WAS_HOME>/systemApps/filetransferSecured.ear and
    <WAS_HOME>/bin/redeployFileTransfer.jacl are not used and should
    be removed.
    

Local fix

  • In the Websphere Application Server for z/OS do not
    use <WAS_HOME>/bin/redeployFileTransfer.jacl
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V6.1.0 for z/OS                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The script redeployFileTransfer.jacl    *
    *                      causes errors on z/OS.                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The script WAS_HOME/bin/redeployFileTransfer.jacl is not
    necessary and does not work on a z/OS system. This script
    should not have been included in the WebSphere Application
    Server install image for z/OS. An attempt to run the script
    may result in an error like the following:
    
    Operation FAILED!
    com.ibm.ws.scripting.ScriptingException:
    com.ibm.websphere.management.application.client.AppDeploymentExc
    eption: AppDeploymentException: []
    org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.commonarchivecore.internal.exception.OpenFa
    ilureException:
    IWAE0006E Archive is not a valid EAR File because the
    deployment descriptor can not be found (case sensitive):
    META-INF/application.xml
    WASX7341W: No "save" was performed before the interactive
    scripting
    session exited; configuration changes will not be saved.
    
    This script is intended only for non-z/OS systems, which have
    two versions of the filetransfer application, authenticating
    and non-authenticating (for backwards compatibility). On these
    platforms, this script is used to switch between the two
    versions.
    
    On z/OS, however, there is only one version of the
    filetransfer application, which can handle both authenticated
    and unauthenticated requests (depending on whether global
    administrative security is enabled). When the
    redeployFileTransfer.jacl script is run on z/OS, it attempts
    to switch to or from a version of the filetransfer ear that
    does not exist, and results in an error.
    

Problem conclusion

  • For z/OS only, the redeployFileTransfer.jacl script has been
    modified to simply print an error message and exit.
    
    APAR PM18152 is currently targeted for inclusion in
    Service Level (Fix Pack) 6.1.0.35 of WebSphere
    Application Server V6.1
