Local fix

  • There are two available workarounds:
    
    ========================
    1) Reinstall pconsole:
    ========================
    Stop pconsole:
    # stopsrc -s  pconsole
    
    Uninstall pconsole:
    # installp -gu  sysmgt.pconsole.rte
    
    Be sure /pconsole was removed
    # rm -r /pconsole
    
    Reinstall pconsole:
    # installp -qaXg -d . sysmgt.pconsole.rte
    
    Restart pconsole:
    # startsrc -s pconsole
    
    
    Now test the pconsole:
    
    https://your.host.name:5336/ibm/console/logon.jsp
    
    ========================
    2)  Modify the Channel Properties:
    ========================
    
    Stop pconsole:
    
    # stopsrc -s  pconsole
    
    Edit the file:
    
    # vi /pconsole/lwi/conf/overrides/channelFW.properties
    
    Make the following changes:
    
    - com.ibm.rcp.channelframework.channel.port.TCP_TEST=
    + com.ibm.rcp.channelframework.channel.port.TCP_TEST=5335
    
    - com.ibm.rcp.channelframework.channel.port.TCP_TEST_2=
    +
    com.ibm.rcp.channelframework.channel.port.TCP_TEST_2=5336
    
    -
    com.ibm.rcp.channelframework.channel.factory.=SSL_TEST_FA
    CTORY
    +
    com.ibm.rcp.channelframework.channel.factory.5336=SSL_TES
    T_FACTORY
    
    -
    com.ibm.rcp.channelframework.chain.channelList.2=TCP_TEST
    _2::HTTP_TEST_2
    :WC_TEST_2
    +
    com.ibm.rcp.channelframework.chain.channelList.2=TCP_TEST
    _2:5336:HTTP_TE
    ST_2:WC_TEST_2
    
    Restart pconsole:
    
    # startsrc -s pconsole
    
    
    Now test the pconsole:
    
    https://your.host.name:5336/ibm/console/logon.jsp
