Error description

  • After migrating from WebSphere member manager (WMM) to virtual
    member manager (VMM), VMM is not able to process/handle root
    i.e BLANK base entries from LDAP.
    VMM allows to configure root of the LDAP server to be configured
    into VMM. WMM was allows BLANK names to baseEntries and was not
    handled properly by VMM.
    
    After migrating from WMM to VMM, VMM was showing nothing for
    getIdMgrRepositoriesForRealm, output for the said command was
    {}; i.e nothing.
    And throws NullPointerException in WAS ISC.

    *                  Server V7.0 and V8.0                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: After migrating from WMM to VMM, VMM    *
    *                      is not able to process root (that is,   *

    ****************************************************************
    VMM allows you to configure "root"(BLANK baseentry in VMM) of
    the LDAP server. But after migrating from WMM to VMM. VMM is
    not able to process BLANK base entries from LDAP(root
    baseEntry).
    

Problem conclusion

  • This fix will read BLANK baseEntry as ROOT and reflect the
    same back to the configuration console/panels.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.21 and 8.0.0.2.  Please refer to the
