Error description

  • Fix pack 7.0.0.15 install fails on eWAS because ivt.ear
    is missing. A  config action in 7.0.0.15 breaks on eWAS,
    because it relies on a <WAS_HOME>/installableApps/ivtApp.ear,
    which is missing on eWAS.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The ivtApp updating code in the         *
    *                      fixpack would fail in some cases with   *

    ****************************************************************
    The configuration action to update ivtApp in existing profiles
    relied on <WAS_HOME>/installableApps/ivtApp.ear existing when
    a profile has ivtApp installed. In the Embedded Websphere
    Application Server case, this does not exist despite ivtApp
    being installed in profiles.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code which updates ivtApp in existing profiles was
    modified to use the copy of ivtApp.ear from the default
    profile template, if it cannot find it at
    <WAS_HOME>/installableApps/ivtApp.ear.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.17.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
