Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * All users of iPhone and iPad devices using the Application   *
    * Center.                                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When trying to install an application through the            *
    * Application Center Client on an iOS device the installation  *
    * may fail if the network is very slow and the download gets   *
    * interrupted. iOS automatically tries to repeat the download  *
    * in this case, however, this never succeeds, since the        *
    * Application Center client's One-Time-URL mechanism was not   *
    * designed for repeatable downloads.                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * -                                                            *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The One-Time-URL mechanism has now been replaced by a
    Short-Time-URL mechanism.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fixpack 5.0.6.2 and is available in release 6.0.0.0.
