    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Using the lrcmd tool fails with a       *
    *                      SocketTimeoutException and never        *
    *                      completes the operation                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The lrcmd tool does not currently retry its connection attempt
    to the Job Scheduler using http if its initial https
    connection attempt fails with a SocketTimeoutException.  It
    only currently retries on an SSLHandshakeException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The lrcmd tool has been updated to retry using http if the
    initial https invocation fails with a SocketTimeoutException.
    Previously, this retry would not happen.  Additionally, if no
    user and password were specified on the invocation, the tool
    has been updated to use http and not do the initial secure
    attempt (since there would be no credentials specified).
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.5.0 and 8.5.5.16.  Please refer to the Recommended
    Updates page for delivery information:
