APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • This is a problem that may happen in a complex high
    availability (HA) manager environment - Typically
    resulting in servers becoming unroutable from a work
    load manager perspective. In addition, incorrect
    ODCTree status information may be propagated
    between coregroups resulting in ODCInfo indicating
    incorrect status of server clusters.

    The condition resolved by this APAR is due to a bulletin board
    user performing an unsubscribe followed rapidly by a subscribe
    and post (same HAManager cache cycle). This causes the active
    coordinator to loose track of the subscription, meaning updates
    will no longer be provided to this subscriber. In this case
    the WebSphere component using the HAManager bulletin board
    service is the coregroup bridge. Typically this specific
    timing condition is rare, but most often associated with
    transparent bridge failover operations associated with a bridge
    process starting or stopping.
