Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server 9.0.5.0 that use the                 *
    *                  managesdk command                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When running the managesdk command,     *
    *                      unexpected errors may occur, such as    *
    *                      a stack trace or unusual logging.       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The managesdk command script passes along the
    USER_INSTALL_ROOT variable which is in turn used by osgi to
    set a logging location.
    There are times when USER_INSTALL_ROOT has not yet been
    set when entering managesdk command script, and this may cause
    osgi to log to locations that are not within the WebSphere
    directory. Some of these locations may not be suitable for
    osgi logging.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR is correction to APAR PH09335 which was included in
    WebSphere 9.0.5.0.  PH09335 passed
    USER_INSTALL_ROOT to be used by osgi to set a logging location.
    
    This APAR makes an additional change which sets
    USER_INSTALL_ROOT in the managesdk command script if it's not
    already set.
    
    This will result in osgi logging to a suitable location within
    the WebSphere directory structure.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack:
    - 9.0.5.1
