    *                      attempting to create a new cluster      *

    ****************************************************************
    If a leftover application folder remains in the master
    configuration repository after an application uninstall is
    performed, this causes a FileNotFoundException when creating a
    new cluster member.
    FFDC Exception:java.io.IOException
    SourceId:com.ibm.ws.management.application.AppAssociation.cluste
    rMemberAdded ProbeId:1300 Reporter:java.lang.Class@a734f326
    java.io.IOException: The system cannot find the specified
    file, either the filename is too long on Windows system or run
    out of file descriptor on UNIX platform.
    java.io.FileNotFoundException:
    /opt/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/dmgr/wstemp/Script164be614b55/
    workspace/cells/SOL/applications/performanceManager.ear/deployme
    nts/performanceManager/deployment.xml (No such file or
    directory)  óÔé¼ ª
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been modified to clean up the leftover
    application folder. This allows the operation to continue to
    create the cluster member.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.15 and 9.0.0.10.  Please refer to the
