Error description

  • A config action to update ivtApp.ear in profiles is run when
    WebSphere Application Server is updated. This action can fail
    due to extraneous warnings from it's running of the
    "manageprofiles" command.
    
    Normally the updateconfig.log should contain something like:
    "Operate on profile <PROFILE_NAME>"
    where <PROFILE_NAME> is the name of one of the profiles in the
    install.
    
    When this issue occurs, the message may occur with
    <PROFILE_NAME> replaced with extraneous messages.
    
    For some customers, this error occurred after applying
    maintenance for fix packs 7.0.0.11 through 7.0.0.15.
    The Deployment Manager started successfully, the the node agent
    did not start.  The postinstaller step failed with the following
    in the error log:
    checkProfilePathReturnCode:
    
    Skipped because property 'was-profile-path-ok' set.
    checkProfilePathReturnCode:  duration 0 seconds

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The fixpack config action to update     *
    *                      ivtApp.ear does not operate correctly   *
    *                      when manageprofiles output has          *
    *                      extraneous messages                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The fixpack config action does not operate correctly when the
    "manageprofiles" command output contains extraneous messages.
    Such messages are sometimes beyond control of the
    "manageprofiles" command such as when caused by system
    libraries or the Java virtual machine.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The config action to update ivtApp.ear in profiles was updated
    to be more robust against this type of situation.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 6.1.0.41 and 7.0.0.19.  Please refer to the
