IC98486: INCORRECT PARAMETERS IN SOME NON-ENGLISH LOG MESSAGES

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Many DataPower log messages are parameterized with strings or
    integers that are filled in only at the time when the log
    message is issued by the firmware.  In firmware releases 6.0.0.0
    through 6.0.0.3 there are some non-English log messages where
    the parameters do not properly match those in the English
    version of the message.
    
    When an incorrectly parameterized log message
    fires while in the locale in question unpredictable results may
    occur ranging from garbled log message output to a firmware
    restart.
    

Local fix

  • Avoid the use of non-English system locales.
    

Problem summary

  • When the appliance uses a non-English locale some log messages
    with incorrect parameters may cause garbled log message output
    or firmware reloads.  This only applies to firmware releases
    6.0.0.0 - 6.0.0.3.
    
    The message catalog files that contained at least one message
    with incorrect parameters were:
    default5-es.xml
    default9-es.xml
    defaultD-es.xml
    
    default2-de.xml
    default5-de.xml
    default6-de.xml
    default9-de.xml
    defaultD-de.xml
    defaultE-de.xml
    defaultG-de.xml
    defaultH-de.xml
    
    default6-fr.xml
    
    default2-it.xml
    default4-it.xml
    default5-it.xml
    default6-it.xml
    default9-it.xml
    defaultA-it.xml
    defaultC-it.xml
    defaultD-it.xml
    defaultE-it.xml
    defaultG-it.xml
    
    default5-ja.xml
    
    default3-ko.xml
