    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: External shared libraries are not       *
    *                      migrated to the new install of          *
    *                      WebSphere when -machineChange true is   *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    External libraries are picked up and saved in the migration
    backup directory when -machineChange true is specified for
    WASPreUpgrade, but WASPostUpgrade does not migrate the
    libraries into the correct location on the new machine. This
    is because migration removes the first element of the path to
    the external libraries, causing no files to be found in the
    backup directory and none to be migrated.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Migration was updated to preserve the correct path to the
    libraries, so WASPostUpgrade can find them and move them to
    the correct location on the target system.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.4.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
