    restart their server.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been modified so file creation tests are no
    longer performed in the inaccessible server directory, instead
    tests are now performed in the server workarea.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.0.2. Please refer to the Recommended Updates page
    for delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • A temporary workaround is to wrap invocation of the server
    command with a script that deletes the contents of the
    <serverName>/workarea/.sCommandAuth directory.
