APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A Resource Adapter (RAR) file which has custom properties is
    installed at the node or cluster scope.  Deployment is
    successful and the adapter works properly.
    
    The problem occurs when an "Update RAR" is performed with an
    updated version of the resource adapter.  This results in a
    successful update, but there are now two instances of each
    custom property.
    
    No errors are generated during the update.
    

Local fix

  • Define the custom properties in the RAR deployment descriptor
    (ra.xml) of both versions of the resource adapter prior to
    initial deployment and update.
