APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When starting up the BPM server, a look-up is initiated for the
    user context in which a database lock is inserted into the BPM
    database governing access to user and group tables.
    This look-up can lead to querying for the server subject -
    represented by the server's topological name - in VMM/LDAP.
    As such a user does not exist, the call is not meaningful.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • During server start-up an attempt is made to resolve the server
    subject in the WAS user registry.  If an LDAP directory imposes
    a length constraint, querying for the the server subject name
    can lead to a constraint violation.
    
    PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION:
    The server subject name is a computed name identifying the
    server in a a cluster topology.  It represents the security
    context in which during server start-up operations are
    performed.  Attempts to establish the current user name in this
    phase result in attempts to check whether the server subject
    exists in the WAS user registry.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A check was included to establish whether the current security
    context implies using the server subject.  If so, no lookup is
    trigerred in the WAS user registry.
