APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When an application domain is disabled and re-enabled, the
    listening port assigned to a Web Application Firewall (WAF) is
    no longer listed in the TCP Table. Client requests to the WAF
    will fail as they can no longer connect to the WAF port.
    

Local fix

  • Modify any part of the WAF configuration object and apply the
    change. For a simple modification, update the Summary field of
    the WAF object and apply. You can then revert the change,
    apply, and save the configuration.
    

Problem summary

  • When a domain is disabled and then re-enabled, front side
    protocol handles in a Web Application Firewall do not show in
    the TCP table.
