APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • IBM WebSphere Application Server stopServer/stopNode/stopManager
    scripts hang in Qshell when LOGOUTPUT is set to *PND in
    QWASJOBD or when the IBM i system value QLOGOUTPUT is set to
    *PND.
    

Local fix

  • Execute the following command to manually change the QWASJOBD
    LOGOUTPUT parameter to *JOBEND.
    
    CHGJOBD JOBD({was_product_library}/QWASJOBD) LOGOUTPUT(*JOBEND)
    
    i.e.
    CHGJOBD JOBD(QWAS85/QWASJOBD) LOGOUTPUT(*JOBEND)
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V8.5 and V9.0.                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: On IBM i, the stopServer, stopNode      *
    *                      and stopManager commands may hang       *
    *                      when the QLOGOUTPUT system value is     *
    *                      set to *PND.                            *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Apply Fix pack 8.5.5.14 or 9.0.0.9          *
    ****************************************************************
    On IBM i, if the QLOGOUTPUT system value is set to *PND, the
    stopServer, stopNode and stopManager commands will hang
    because the DSPJOBLOG command will be in a wait state forever
    until the server's Job Log can be obtained.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere Application Server is fixed to set LOGOUTPUT
    to *JOBEND in the QWAS85/QWASJOBD and QWAS9/QWASJOBD job
    descriptions.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.14 and 9.0.0.9.  Please refer to the

Temporary fix

  • Set LOGOUTPUT
    to *JOBEND in the QWAS85/QWASJOBD and QWAS9/QWASJOBD job
    descriptions, eg:
    
    CHGJOBD JOBD(QWAS85/QWASJOBD) LOGOUTPUT(*JOBEND)
    CHGJOBD JOBD(QWAS9/QWASJOBD) LOGOUTPUT(*JOBEND)
