Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7 and V8.                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Undefined variable references in name   *
    *                      space binding configurations cause      *
    *                      server start-up failure.                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Undefined variable references in name space binding
    configurations cause server start-up failure. Errors of
    severity this low should trigger warning messages but not
    prevent a server from starting.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Undefined variable references are now handled properly when
    reading name space binding, foreign cell binding, and custom
    property configuration data. Undefined variable references are
    noted as warning messages in the system log.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.25 and 8.0.0.4.  Please refer to the
