    ****************************************************************
    Newly created servers and newly edited servers fail to start
    when Java 2 Security is enabled due to a configuration
    transformation failure on z/OS after an SDK update. Mixed
    version cell problems are seen on multiple platforms.
    These problems appear with the following IBM Software
    Development Kit (SDK) upgrades:
    1> SDK 5 SR16 FP3
    2> SDK 6 SR14
    3> SDK 6.26 SR6
    4> SDK 7 SR5
    Problem 1:
    On z/OS with Java 2 Security enabled, newly created servers
    and newly edited servers fail to start after the SDK upgrade.
    Problem 2:
    On any operating system, a mixed version cell containing a
    WebSphere Application Server V6.0.2 node might experience node
    synchronization problems.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The transform code is corrected to prevent this condition.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 6.1.0.47, 7.0.0.31, 8.0.0.7 and 8.5.5.1.  Please
    refer to the  Recommended Updates page for delivery

Temporary fix

  • For problem 1, there is no workaround.
    
    For problem 2, the circumventing fix is to add JVM property
    com.ibm.xtq.processor.overrideSecureProcessing=true
    to the deployment manager, save the configuration and restart
    the deployment manager.
