    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    After linking two cells, APC/ARFM require information to
    flow dynamically between cells. However, APC/ARFM demand
    information requires the cells to be restarted.
    If the cells are not restarted, then APC does not start
    additional servers in the point cells to meet demand.
    APC only starts enough servers to meet the minimum instances
    setting.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A code change was made so that a cell restart is not required
    for APC/ARFM demand information to flow after linking cells.
    
    For WebSphere Virtual Enterprise Version 7.0, this code
    change will be included in the next available fix pack.
    For WebSphere Application Server Version 8.5, this code change
    will be included in the next available fix pack.
