Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  WebSphere eXtreme Scale users that run the  *
    *                  xscmd command with security enabled.        *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The xscmd command requires all          *
    *                      security parameters to be provided      *
    *                      even though some of them are optional   *
    *                      or have default values.                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Some of the paramers required by 'xscmd' can be set to
    default values:
    -prot can be defaulted to 'SSL_TLS'
    -cxpv can be defaulted to 'IBMJSSE2'
    -tt can be defaulted to 'SSL-Suported' if '-ts' is provided,
    otherwise 'TLS'
    -tst can be defaulted to a value derived from the file
    extension if '-ts' is specified, e.g. JKS for .jks, PKCS12 for
    .p12
    -kst can be defaulted to a value derived from the file
    extension if '-ks' is specified
    -ks is only required when transport is Object Request
    Broker(ORB)
    and '-ts' is not
    provided, or if the transport is ORB and the command is 'xscmd
    -c clear' or 'xscmd -c findbykey'

    with
    the specified parameters in the described situations is availabl
    for V8.5. The fix is also included in V8.6.0.1 and V8.6.0.2.
