Error description

  • When the wsadmin utility is launched in connected mode, it
    accesses the local repository of the profile where launched:
    profile_root/config/temp/download/
    when it should be accessing the repository of the server to
    which wsadmin is connected which results in permission related
    Workspace WKSP0012E errors in the Dmgr's SystemOut.log file,
    for example:
    .
    08/30/12 15:21:50:250 EDT] 0000002f WorkSpaceMast E
    WKSP0012E:
    Exception while extracting cells/was7Cell/nodes/wastest/
    node.xml from
    ConfigRepository -
    com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.DocumentIOException:
    Unable to create temp file for document:
    cells/was7Cell/nodes/wastest/node.xml
    .
    This occurs when the customer invokes wsadmin.sh as root user,
    and the Dmgr is started as another user, wasuser.
    .
    As a temporary workaround, client changes the ownership back to
    wasuser to avoid the above permission workspace related error
    in the SystemOut.log files on the Deployment Manager
    .
    The content under the profile_root/config/temp/download
    directory written by wsadmin is due to the fact that when the
    wsadmin tool is running in connected mode, it mistakenly
    accesses the local repository of the profile where wsadmin is
    launched. However, it should be accessing the repository
    ( profile_root/config/temp/download/ sub-directory) of the
    server to which wsadmin is connected.
    
    For example, if the dmgr is started as wasuser, and wsadmin is
    started by a different userid, for example, root user, the
    contents under profile_root/config/temp/download will be
    assigned as the userid that invokes wsadmin; this behavior
    caused permission issues.
    
    Environment:
    WebSphere Application Server ND - Distributed 7.0.0.23 Fixpack
    

Local fix

  • As a temporary workaround, client can change the ownership back
    to wasuser to avoid the above permission workspace related error
    in the SystemOut.log files on the Dmgr.

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When starting wsadmin and server with different user ids, a
    WorkSpace DocumentIOException will be thrown.  The error
    occurred because the wsadmin had mistakenly accessed the local
    repository document with the wsadmin user when connecting to
    the server.
    

Problem conclusion

  • It is a bug in the wsadmin code that mistakenly accessed the
    local repository document when it is connecting to the server.
    This has been corrected.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.27, 8.0.0.6, and 8.5.0.2.  Please refer to the
