APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When performing a local migration to WAS v9.0, not all virtual
    host entries in
    profile_root/config/cell/<cellName>/virtualhosts.xml are
    migrated to WAS v9.0.
    

Local fix

  • Manually add the missing virtual hosts entries to the new
    WAS v9.0 application server using the WAS v9.0 Integrated
    Solutions Console (ISC).
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Migration Tooling                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: There are missing host names in the     *
    *                      virtual host config file.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Migration minimized the virtual host entries based on IP
    address.  When multiple host names exist for the same IP
    address the migration code removed what it thought were
    duplicate entries.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Migration tooling has been adjusted to only minimize the
    multiple host aliases based on whether a remote migration is
    being performed.  If a local migration is being performed the
    duplicate IP check is by passed to preserve the host alias
    entry.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.11.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
