PI18521: STOPSERVER FAILED IF OSGI.EMBEDDED.CLEANUPONOPEN OPTION SET TO TRUE

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Normally stopServer is successfully completed even if
    osgi.embedded.cleanupOnOpen is set to true.
    
    However if all files under
    <profile_root>/configuration/org.eclipse.osgi/* cleaned by iFix
    installation or other causes, stopServer failed with
    FileNotFoundException.
    This is because of no files generated to
    <profile_root>/configuration/org.eclipse.osgi/* during
    stopServer if osgi.embedded.cleanupOnOpen is set to true.
    

Local fix

  • Modify the osgi.embedded.cleanupOnOpen to false(as default)
    then execute startServer.

    ****************************************************************
    The OSGi framework that forms the core of WebSphere
    Application Server can be configured to perform cleanup
    operations when it starts by setting a system property in the
    OSGi configuration or as a system property.  In cases where
    the cleanup has already been performed, the process will fail
    when it attempts to access already-cleared files.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Eclipse bug 353880 was ported into the WebSphere
    Application server version of the Equinox OSGi framework.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.4.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
