    ANT 1.6.5 does not properly delete dangling symlinks.
    
    In 7.0.0.9, a postinstall action uses ANT to delete all files
    under WAS_HOME/java64/lib/zi , but this fails if there exists
    a dangling symlink called WAS_HOME/java64/lib/zi/Asia/Katmandu.
    
    This failure causes a series of problems ultimately resulting
    in a chmod
    error similar to the following in applyPTF.out :
    chmod: FSUM6180 file
    "/wasv7config/bycell/bydmnode/DeploymentManager/java64/lib/zi/As
     ia": EDC5139I Operation not permitted.
    
    and the error similar to this one on the console:
    +BBOO0251E MULTI-PRODUCT PTF POST INSTALLER HAS DETECTED AN
    ERROR 278
    DURING THE APPLICATION OF POST-INSTALL SERVICE FOR PRODUCT
    WEBSPHERE. SEE LOG FILE FOR DETAILS:
    /local/websp/config70/xtcell/xtdmnode/DeploymentManager/properti
    es/service/[...]
    

Problem conclusion

  • To prevent this error, a new non-ANT based script was
    introduced to delete the dangligng
    WAS_HOME/java64/lib/zi/Asia/Katmandu symlink.
    
    APAR PM22524 is currently targeted for inclusion in Service
    Level (Fix Pack) 7.0.0.13 of WebSphere Application Server V7.0.
