Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server V7.0 users *
    *                  of the administrative console in an admin   *
    *                  agent environment.                          *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: MetadataNotAvailableException is        *
    *                      thrown when managing multiple server    *
    *                      profiles in an admin agent environment. *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    We stored a static copy of the ManagedObjectMetadataHelper
    object for performance reasons, but this object must be
    recreated for each cell. In an admin agent environment, we
    were setting it to the first profile managed by the console
    and never refreshing it.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To prevent the MetadataNotAvailableException, the
    ManagedObjectMetadataHelper object is now reinitialized for
    each request.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.13.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
