Downloadable files


Abstract

ObjectGrid server ports were binding to all network interfaces on a host. Specifically, this problem was seen on the deployment manager process.

Download Description

PK60284 resolves the following problem:

ERROR DESCRIPTION:
Customer will see errors on a system where ObjectGrid is configured to work on an aliased IP on a system where there are multiple IP addresses. This APAR will also fix issues where the Deployment Manager starts with errors that prevent ObjectGrid from being used.

LOCAL FIX:

PROBLEM SUMMARY

USERS AFFECTED:
All users of IBM® WebSphere® Extended Deployment Data Grid 6.1.0.1 using the ObjectGrid function.

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
ObjectGrid server ports were binding to all network interfaces on a host. Specifically, this problem was seen on the deployment manager process.

RECOMMENDATION:
None

ObjectGrid code was instructing the Channel Framework code to listen on all network interfaces instead of just the one specified. The property setting of com.ibm.websphere.network.useMultiHome was not taken into account when making this decision. This fix now takes this setting into account.

Checking to determine if the host name specified matches the current machine's host name was also removed to allow the server to start in a multi-home environment.

PROBLEM CONCLUSION:
The fixes will be included in Service Pack 6.1.0.2 for WebSphere Application Server Extended Deployment.
