Error description

  • In WebSphere Application Server V7.0, when a new SSL config is
    created, other services that rely on existing SSL config may
    fail intermittently.  For example, the error may look like
    following:
    
    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: CWPKI0024E: The certificate
    alias "client-cert" specified by the property
    com.ibm.ssl.keyStoreServerAlias is not found in KeyStore
    "/opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/myProfile/config/cells/my
    Cell/nodes/myNode/aaa.bbb".

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0 and V8.0 using SSL for JAX-WS   *
    *                  applications.                               *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Outbound SSL connection may fail when   *
    *                      different SSL configurationss are used  *
    *                      for Web services connections.           *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Install a fix pack containing this APAR.    *
    ****************************************************************
    When Web services applications are configured to use different
    SSL configs for outbound connections, the outbound SSL
    connection may fail due to incorrect SSL configuration being
    bound to the SSL channel.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Web services code has been changed to use the correct SSL
    configuration when creating the SSL channel for outbound
    connections.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.23 and 8.0.0.3.  Please refer to the
