    The console would just use the first server then cluster it
    found as the default when installing an application.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The console code now looks for valid targets to use for the
    default when installing an application.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.17.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
    page for delivery information:

Temporary fix

  • Don't use the default target.  Set the value during
    installation.
