APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The following custom property exists in WebSphere Extended
    Deployment, but is missing from WebSphere Proxy Server v7.0:
    
    com.ibm.ws.odr.plugincfg.property.PluginInstallRoot
    
    The absence of this property causes the web server Plug-in to
    not be able to initialize SSL.  Consequently all requests
    between the web server Plug-in and the WebSphere Proxy Server
    will be over HTTP only.
    

Local fix

  • Manually edit the plugin-cfg.xml file and add the following:
    
    <Property Name="PluginInstallRoot"
    Value="/usr/IBM/HTTPServer/Plugins/"/>
    
    Change the value to the correct directory where the IBM web
    server Plug-in was installed.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Proxy Server V7.0                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The WebSphere Proxy Server is not       *
    *                      able to set the PluginInstallRoot       *
    *                      property in the plugin-cfg.xml.         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The WebSphere plugin needs the PluginInstallRoot property set
    in the plugin-cfg.xml to be able to establish SSL connections.
    Currently there is no way to configure the WebSphere Proxy
    Server to generate the plugin-cfg.xml with the
    PluginInstallRoot property.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Support of the
    com.ibm.ws.odr.plugincfg.property.PluginInstallRoot custom
    property has been added so you can configure the
    PluginInstallRoot property in the plugin-cfg.xml that is
    generated by the WebSphere Proxy server.
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.19.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
