    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0                                 *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The process umask is incorrectly        *
    *                      defaulting.                             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The server process umask is incorrectly defaulting.
    This incorrect default behavior will
    occur if the _BPX_BATCH_UMASK WebSphere environment variable
    has not been explicitly set.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been changed to default the umask to 007 if the
    _BPX_BATCH_UMASK WebSphere environment variable has not
    been configured. A umask of 007 will only allow
    administrators read and write access to the files created.
    This default behavior is consistent with previous releases
    of Websphere Application Server for z/OS.
    
    APAR PM32622  is currently targeted for inclusion in Service
    Level (Fix Pack) 7.0.0.17 of WebSphere Application Server V7.0.
