Error description

  • When changing the port number of XD_AGENT port, the changes
    are
    not applied to the plugin-cfg.xml though they are applied in
    the configuration via the serverindex.xml.  This is
    regarding
    the Intelligent Management stanza where the connector
    servers
    are listed.
    

Local fix

  • Update the plugin on the webserver with the correct port number.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server WAS ND using the Intelligent         *
    *                  Management for web servers feature.         *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When XDAGENT_PORT values are changed    *
    *                      the Intelligent Management for web      *
    *                      servers generated plugin-cfg.xml is not *
    *                      updated.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When XDAGENT_PORT values are changed and Intelligent Management
    for web servers is enabled the plugin-cfg.xml is not updated to
    reflect the change.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The admin.intellmgmt component has been update to correct the
    issue and the updated observer behavior is as follows:
    
    1) Change an XDAGENT_PORT value, save, and synchronize the
    change.
    
    2) Bounce or start the process associated with XDAGENT_PORT
    change. At this point with the process actively using the newly
    defined XDAGENT_PORT all Intelligent Management enabled web
    server intellmgmt.xml files will be updated with correct
    connector values.
    
    3) The plugin-cfg.xml file will then need to be regenerated for
    all Intelligent Management enabled web servers and propagated.
    
    NOTE: PI82240 has a prerequisite APAR of PI72201 and PI72201 has
    it's own prerequisite APAR of PI72200. All nodes in the
    environment need these APARs.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    packs 8.5.5.13 and 9.0.0.6.  Please refer to the Recommended
    Updates page for delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • After changing XDAGENT_PORT values disable the Intelligent
    Management for web servers feature, re-enable the feature, and
    regenerate the plugin-cfg.xml.
