PJ40988: ENABLING SSI TRACING REQUIRES CREATING A TRIGGER FILE ON THE CE APP SERVER RATHER THAN USING FEM

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Customer had issues with Image Services (IS) server which caused
    CFS-IS to hang.  This problem was later determined to be caused
    by a hardware failure.
    
    However, to troubleshoot this issue, the SSI subsystem tracing
    was modified such that enabling/disabling SSI trace would not
    require a CE restart and could be done via FileNet Enterprise
    Manager. This makes it easier to collect SSI debug data.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Customers diagnosing connection issues between Content       *
    * Engine and Image services that required enabling SSI tracing *
    * were required to create a trigger file on the Content Engine *
    * application server's file system and restart the Content     *
    * Engine server.  This was not consistent with the tracing     *
    * mechanism used by other Content Engine subsystems, which was *
    * done through FileNet Enterprise Manager and did not require  *
    * an application server restart to take affect.                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Upgrade to Content Engine 4.5.1.8-P8CE-FP008 or later.       *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • Content Engine 4.5.1.8-P8CE-FP008 and later enables the Content
    Engine SSI subsystem tracing to be enabled by FileNet Enterprise
    Manager without an application server restart.
