IV20252: TEPS CONFIGURE PLUGIN LOOKS FOR KFW_INTERFACE_CNPS_HOST IN WRONG FILE
A fix is available
Closed as program error.
The "Installation Guide" (http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocent er/tivihelp/v15r1/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.itm.doc_6.2.3fp1%2F itm623FP1_install360.htm&path=3_0_3_0_7_3_6_1) directs the user to put KFW_INTERFACE_xxxx_HOST in CANDLEHOME/config/cq.ini. The TEPS configuration plugin uses KFW_INTERFACE_cnps_HOST to set the host name in tep.jnlp for use in browser clients. The plugin incorrectly looks for KFW_INTERFACE_cnps_HOST in CANDLEHOME/<platform>/cq/original/lnxenv. If it doesn't find the setting, it uses the local host name as reported by Java's InetAddress.getLocalHost().getCanonicalHostName() method.
Define KFW_INTERFACE_cnps_HOST in both CANDLEHOME/config/cq.ini and CANDLEHOME/<platform>/cq/original/lnxenv.
The IBM Tivoli Monitoring "Installation Guide" gives directions to define interfaces (like KFW_INTERFACE_cnps_HOST) in CANDLEHOME/config/cq.ini (cq.ini). However, the "High Availability Guide for Distributed Systems" gives directions to set the value in CANDLEHOME/<platform>/cq/original/lnxenv (lnxenv). Further, the install process looks for the value in lnxenv. Because settings in lnxenv are not preserved, all code and documentation with respect to KFW_INTERFACE_cnps_HOST should instead reference cq.ini. Install Actions If you have defined a virtual host name for the portal server in the lnxenv file, move the setting to cq.ini and reconfigure the portal server to make the setting active.
The code was changed to obtain KFW_INTERFACE_cnps_HOST from cq.ini. If it is not defined there, the value is obtained from lnxenv in case the user followed older documentation. The fix for this APAR is contained in the following maintenance packages: | fix pack | 6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0005
Define KFW_INTERFACE_cnps_HOST in both cq.ini and lnxenv.
