Error description

  • IBM WAS Fix Pack 8.5.5.13 will fail to install stating one or
    more WAS Profiles is using JDK 6.0, when this is not true.  The
    JDK 6.0 WAS Profile check will fail if the
    /QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/JavaVM/jdk80 directory exists, but is
    empty.  This can occur if JDK 8.0 LPP is installed and then
    deleted or the directory is restored.
    
    The message returned on the installation failure is,
    
    "The installation failed because a profile uses Java SE 6"

    *                  Server V8.5.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: On IBM i, the install of fix pack       *
    *                      8.5.5.13 may fail with the              *
    *                      following message:                      *
    *                      "The installation failed because a      *
    *                      profile uses Java SE 6"                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Apply fix pack 8.5.5.14 or install the      *
    *                  following Java SE 8 product options:        *
    *                  5770JV1    16      Java SE 8 32 bit         *
    *                  5770JV1    17      Java SE 8 64 bit         *
    ****************************************************************
    On IBM i, the check for JAVA SE 8 fails when Java SE 8 was
    uninstalled on the system. The uninstall leaves some folders
    which causes the check for Java SE 8 to fail. The check
    bypasses Java SE 7 and causes the install to fail.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere Application Server is fixed to execute a more
    precise check for Java SE 8 and Java SE 7.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.14.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
    page for delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • Install the following product options and then retry the
    install of fix pack 8.5.5.13:
    
     5770JV1    16      Java SE 8 32 bit
     5770JV1    17      Java SE 8 64 bit
