    ****************************************************************
    The null pointer exception occurs when the catalog server is
    verifying Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) client authentication
    configuration information.
    When the transport type is set to TCP/IP, no SSL configuration
    information is set.  As a result, the catalog server does not
    start correctly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was updated to prevent the null pointer when the
    transport type is set to TCP/IP.
    

Temporary fix
