Error description

  • When Java 2 security is enabled, the eXtreme IO transport of
    WebSphere eXtreme Scale 8.6 will fail with a
    NullPointerException attempting to find the configuration XML
    from the runtime jars. The NullPointerException causes a
    variety of other errors to appear, including
    [com.ibm.websphere.objectgrid.ConnectException:
    java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError] down to the NPE at the
    lowest layer.
