Error description

  • Customer wants to connect to IMS. When the application attempts
    to make use of the IMS LocalOption it looks like the
    ThreadIdentity is not being passed on...
    
    TRACEDETAIL=E tracing shows WebSphere security code extracting a
    UTOKEN which represents the identity running on the thread.
    Security gives this UTOKEN to the J2C component which passes it
    to IMS CONNECT. The UTOKEN is all binary zeros, as this trace
    entry shows:

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0 for WebSphere Z/OS              *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When using code path requiring a        *
    *                      populated UTOKEN, Websphere was         *
    *                      failing.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When migrating code from an earlier WebSphere version, logic
    to properly handle UTOKENS was left out of native Z/OS
    security code. This caused UTOKENs to contain only their
    initial value of all zero's. This caused any code in native
    z/OS requiring a populated UTOKEN to fail.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Solution was to put UTOKEN handling back into service stream.
    
    APAR PM33471 is currently targeted for inclusion in
    Service Level (Fix Pack) 7.1.0.19 of WebSphere
    Application Server 7.0, and is currently targeted for
    inclusion in Service Level (Fix Pack) 8.0.0.1 of WebSphere
    Application Server 8.0.
