APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Currently WASPreUpgrade requires the WAS install root and the
    name of a profile to collect. WebSphere to Bluemix Migrations
    will not have this information, but will have the user install
    root, which WASPreUpgrade can transform into what it needs to
    collect the old profile.

Problem summary

    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Need ability to provide the             *
    *                      USER_INSTALL_ROOT as the second         *
    *                      parameter to WASPostUpgrade.            *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    iSeries allows the second parameter to be specified as the
    USER_INSTALL_ROOT directory.  Provide this same capability for
    the distributed platforms.
    

Problem conclusion

  • When specifying the second parameter as the USER_INSTALL_ROOT,
    we need to normalize the parameters to be the WAS_INSTALL_ROOT
    and the profile name for the -oldProfile parameter.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.5.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
