    This affects portal scripts when they try to create a
    cluster member and the following wsadmin command:
    
    $AdminTask createCluster {-interactive}
    
    This error only occurs when
    com.ibm.ws.management.connector.*=all tracing is enabled on the
    DMGR.
    

Local fix

  • Disable com.ibm.ws.management.connector.*=all traces on the
    Deployment Manager.
