Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0, V8.0, and V8.5.                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When the JAVACORE modify command is     *
    *                      issued against a daemon process, it     *
    *                      causes the daemon process to            *
    *                      terminate.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The JAVACORE modify command is used to request a new javacore
    from the process's JVM. Issuing the modify command
    F {DAEMON},JAVACORE will cause the daemon process to terminate
    instead, as it does not have a java environment.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code was changed to prevent the JAVACORE modify command from
    being issued against a daemon process. Additionally, modify
    commands now route their responses to the z/OS console which
    issued the command.
    
    
    APAR PM84850 requires changes to documentation.
    
    NOTE: Periodically, we refresh the documentation on our Web
    site, so the changes might have been made before you read this
    text. To access the latest on-line documentation, go to the
    product library page at:
    
    http://www.ibm.com/software/webservers/appserv/library
    
    The following update to the WebSphere Application Server
    Version 7.0 Information Center will be made available in June
    2013.
    
    New message:
    BBOO0417E: DAEMON IS NOT A VALID TARGET FOR COMMAND {0}
    
    Explanation: This modify command is not valid when issued
    against a daemon process. Therefore, the command did not
    successfully complete.
    
    Useraction: Retry the command with a non-daemon target.
    
    APAR PM84850 is currently targeted for inclusion in WebSphere
    Application Server Fix Packs 7.0.0.33, 8.0.0.9, and 8.5.5.2
    of WebSphere Application Server.
