Problem conclusion

  • Note: As we update our knowledge centers, the following
    Version 9.0 modifications will be available. To access the
    latest on-line documentation, go to the product library page
    at http://www.ibm.com/software/webservers/appserv/library and
    select the version and product that is appropriate for your
    WebSphere Application Server environment.
    
    The following Version 9.0 issues will be addressed:
    
    ID: #779 (GHE)
    Problem: The topic, Liberty: Default port numbers, needs links
    to the endpoint details to make both the topic and the linked
    to topic more useable.
    Resolution: Topic,  Liberty: Default port numbers, is updated
    Specifics:
    (1) rtcomm-1.0 is removed from Table 1. Default port
    numbers of Liberty features
    (2) Links are placed into this topic for
    a. httpEndpoint - HTTP Endpoint (httpEndpoint) is linked to
    topic, HTTP Endpoint (httpEndpoint)
    
    b. sipEndpoint - SIP Endpoint (sipEndpoint) is linked to
    topic, SIP Endpoint (sipEndpoint)
    
    c. wasJmsEndpoint - WAS JMS Endpoint (wasJmsEndpoint) is
    linked to the topic, WAS JMS Endpoint (wasJmsEndpoint)

    ID: #782 (GHE)
    Problem: The customer is having trouble and
    runs into issues when their terminal emulator's session has the
    wrong Host code-page defined for their target server.
    Topic, securityUtility command, and topic,
    configUtility command, include the following CAUTION:
    CAUTION: Different operating system might treat some
    characters differently. For the Windows environment, if you
    have ! in your input string, it needs to be escaped by the ^
    character. For example,
    
    D:\Liberty\images\855\Liberty855\wlp\bin>configUtility
    createConfigFile="a^!"
    
    This CAUTION needs to add more details to help these issues.
    Resolution: Topic, securityUtility command, and topic,
    configUtility command, are updated with a replacement CAUTION
    that reads:
    CAUTION:
    Different operating systems and command line environments
    treat some characters differently. Many environments, such as
    Unix System Services on z/OS, allow you to redefine which
    characters are "special" and how they should behave.
    
    By default in the Windows environment, if you have an
    exclamation point (!) in your input string it needs to be
    escaped by the caret character (^).
    For example, encoding "a!" would be written as:
    D:\Liberty\images\855\Liberty855\wlp\bin>securityUtility
    encode "a^!"
    
    In other cases, or on other operating systems, you may need to
    use single quotes around the arguments being passed to the tool.
    Additionally, if you use a terminal emulator, make sure your
    session is configured to use the same code-page as your server.
    Please refer to your operating system, command shell, and
    terminalemulator's documentation about "special characters" and
    code-pages if you experience unexpected results.
