Error description

  • Application Server failed to start with "-agentlib:HeapDetect"
    generic JVM arguments.
    
    If a customer runs with WVE v7.0.0.2 on WAS v8.0.0.x with 64bit
    JVM on a distributed system, the ODR servers and the application
    servers created with the defaultXD server template (such as
    servers in a WVE dynamic cluster) might fail to be started.
    

Local fix

  • Local Fix:
    Locate the server.xml of the  ODR servers or the application
    servers created with the defaultXD server template, and search
    for "agentlib:HeapDetect" under the attribute JVMEntry.  Update
    the argument to "agentlib:HeapDetect64".  Restart the server.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  Users of WebSphere Application Server       *
    *                  Version 8.0.0.x with WebSphere Virtual      *
    *                  Enterprise (WVE) Version 7.0.0.2 who        *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: In a WebSphere Application Server       *
    *                      8.0.0.x environment, after Fix Pack 3   *
    *                      installation, the ODR server or         *
    *                      the servers in a dynamic                *
    *                      cluster fail.                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    In an environment with WebSphere Application Server Version
    8.0.0.x and WebSphere Virtual Enterprise Version 7.0.0.2, the
    on demand router server or the servers in the WebSphere
    Virtual Enterprise dynamic cluster fail after you apply
    WebSphere Virtual Enterprise Fix Pack 3. On the affected
    server, in the native_stderr.log file, the following error
    message displays:
    "JVMJ9TI001E Agent library HeapDetect could
    not be opened (HeapDetect.dll is not a valid Win32
    application. )
    JVMJ9VM015W Initialization error for library j9jvmti26(-3):
    JVMJ9VM009E J9VMDllMain failed"
    

Problem conclusion

  • Before you install WebSphere Virtual Enterprise Fix Pack 3,
    on WebSphere Application Server Version 8.0.0.x, the copy of
    libHeapDetect.so is either for a 32-bit or for a 64-bit JVM.
    During installation, the appropriate file is loaded onto the
    system based on the bit mode of the system. WebSphere
    Application Server Version 8 supports either a 64-bit or a
    32-bit JVM on a 64-bit system, therefore both HeapDetect
    native library versions must be installed on the system:
    libHeapDetect64.so for the 64-bit JVM, and libHeapDetect.so
    for the 32-bit JVM.  However, under certain conditions, the
    attribute agentlib:HeapDetect is not updated to
    agentlib:HeapDetect64 on an existing server, and the wrong
    library  is loaded causing failure.
    
    Apply this interim fix after you install WebSphere Virtual
    Enterprise Version 7 Fix Pack 3 to correct the described error.
