    The following property for CSIv2 inbound transport
    SSLCONFIG does not have a value in the new security.xml, and
    causes the NPE

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: After running AddNode command, newly    *
    *                      added Node Agent fails to start due     *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    This issue happens when the following custom property is
    defined in security.xml, but it doesn't have any value element.
    "was.com.ibm.websphere.security.zos.csiv2.inbound.transport.sslc
    onfig"
    During processing this custom property, the security code
    accesses the value without validating the value exists. As a
    result, a NullPointerException is thrown.
    

Problem conclusion

  • With this fix, the value is accessed only if the value exists.
    
    APAR PM22579 is currently targeted for inclusion in
    Service Level (Fix Pack) 6.1.0.35 of WebSphere
    Application Server V6.1
