    ****************************************************************
    Custom Advisor code relies on On Demand Configuration (ODC)
    matching transportChainName to channel chain name to obtain
    host, port and protocol information to make a routing
    decision.  When WebSphere Virtual Enterprise is running, ODC
    does not carry the defined name of the channel chains as they
    are customizable and also a more generic naming convention is
    followed to allow routing to non WebSphere Application
    Servers. This results in Custom Advisor with incorrect host,
    port and protocol
    

Problem conclusion

  • Custom Advisor code was updated to get host, port, protocol
    information from server.xml and serverindex.xml configuration
    files and not to rely on ODC.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.27, 8.0.0.6 and 8.5.0.2.  Please refer to the
