Error description

  • After configuring a dynamic outbound endpoint SSL
    configuration, the Test Connection for the eXtreme Scale session
    management to a WebSphere DataPower XC10 appliance fails with
    the following exception:
    
    CWXSC0901E: URL connection to the specified IBM WebSphere
    DataPower XC10 Appliance failed.  Check the security credentials
    and the IP or host name of the appliance before attempting
    again.
    
    Examination of the WebSphere Application Server deployment
    manager FFDC log reveals the following exception:

    ****************************************************************
    After you configure a dynamic outbound endpoint SSL
    configuration in the WebSphere Application Server
    administrative console, if you click the Test Connection
    button to test a connection to an appliance-hosted data grid,
    then the connection fails with the error message, CWXSC0901E,
    in the deployment manager logs.
    In the WebSphere eXtreme Scale code that governs the
    administrative console panel, a ClassCastException occurs
    because a WebSphere Application Server component is expecting
    a different data type than what is sent from eXtreme Scale.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The eXtreme Scale runtime environment has been corrected to
    send data with the data type expected by WebSphere Application
    Server, which corrects the problem.
