Error description

  • AdminTask changeHostName fails to regen certs on DMGR
    
    
    On deployment manager when we try to regenerate the certs using
    wsadmin "AdminTask.changeHostName' command using
    regenDefaultCert. It is looking for NodeDefaultKeyStore
    instead of celldefaultkeystore even though we specified the
    node name of DMGR (cellManager01).
    

Local fix

  • Workaround specifying the -regenDefaultCert switch, and manually
    runnig the  AdminTask.createChainedCertificate command.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  Users of the IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server AdminTask changeHostName with the    *
    *                  -regenDefaultCert switch.                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When specifying '-regenDefaultCert'     *
    *                      on the changeHostName AdminTask and     *
    *                      specifying the cell manager node, the   *
    *                      command fails.                          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When specifying '-regenDefaultCert' on the changeHostName
    AdminTask and specifying the cell manager node, a
    CommandValidationException is thrown stating that
    the named keystore under the named scope cannot be found.
    The problem arises because the '-regenDefaultCert' option to
    the command is coded to use certain name and scope defaults
    that do not apply when the node specified is the deployment
    manager node.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The command now uses the correct keystore scope and name when
    the node specified is the deployment manager's node.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.29, 8.0.0.6, and 8.5.0.2.  Please refer to the
