    When DMgr get null as deploy target, it resutls in
    NullPointerException during deployment.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code has be fixed such that deploy target value is passed by
    app target cluster member instead of dmgr calcuating it by
    itself which may result in null.
    
    Install/Dependency information is available in the readme.txt
    on FixCentral. When the user goes to the download files page
    in FixCentral, the readme will be available with the fix
    package as a separate download.
