APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Executing the AdminTask.extractConfigProperties with
    -selectSubTypes JavaProcessDef on WebSphere Application Server
    z/OS results in a configuration property file that contains 3
    JVM process (control, servant, and adjunt).  Validating the
    property file with the AdminTask.validateConfigProperties
    command results in
    
    ADMG0811I: Changing value for this property processType. New
    value specified is Servant. Old value was Control.
    

Local fix

  • The issue can be worked around currently by making a manual
    update to the properties file after it is extracted and adding
    the processType to the ResourceId in the header infomation for
    each JavaProcessDef. For example if the following is extracted:
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    #
    # SubSection 1.0.12.0 # Process definition section
    #
    ResourceType=JavaProcessDef
    ImplementingResourceType=Server
    ResourceId=Cell=!{cellName}:Node=!{nodeName}:Server=!{serverName
    }:JavaProcessDef=AttributeInfo=processDefinitions
    #
    
    #
    #Properties
    #
    executableTarget=com.ibm.ws.runtime.WsServer
    executableName="${JAVA_HOME}/bin/java"
    stopCommand="STOP BBOS001; CANCEL BBOS001"
    stopCommandArgs={}
    terminateCommand=FORCE BBOS001
    workingDirectory="${USER_INSTALL_ROOT}" #required
    startCommandArgs={AMODE=64,JOBNAME=BBOS001,ENV=WAS00.NDN1.BBOS00
    1,REUSASID=YES}
    executableArguments={}
    startCommand=START N700ACR
    executableTargetKind=JAVA_CLASS
    #ENUM(EXECUTABLE_JAR|JAVA_CLASS),default(JAVA_CLASS)
    terminateCommandArgs={}
    processType=Control
    
    
    #
    # SubSection 1.0.12.0.2 # Environment properties
    #
    ResourceType=JavaProcessDef
    ImplementingResourceType=Server
    ResourceId=Cell=!{cellName}:Node=!{nodeName}:Server=!{serverName
    }:JavaProcessDef=AttributeInfo=environment(name,value)
    #
    
    #
    #Properties
    #
    was.com.ibm.websphere.zos.jvmmode=64bit
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Then each of the 'ResourceId' lines above should have the
    processType appended. In this case the two lines starting with
    'ResourceId' from the above set of properties would be changed
    to:
    
    
    ResourceId=Cell=!{cellName}:Node=!{nodeName}:Server=!{serverName
    }:JavaProcessDef=processType#Control
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0, V8.0, and V8.5                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The JavaProcessDef subtype was not      *
    *                      extracted properly on a                 *
    *                      AdminTask.extractConfigProperties().    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When multiple regions exist such as the Servant and Adjunct
    regions, there was no way to specify a particular
    JavaProcessDef in properties file based configuration.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Server.properties file running properties file based
    configuration now has uses processType as the key for
    JavaProcessDef.
