Local fix

Problem summary

  • ServersEditorView attempts to process the server type value
    which is null in this case.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM 8.5.0.1 that introduces checks to
    prevent the null value from being evaluated. On Fix Central
    (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral), search for JR54397:
    
        1. Select IBM Business Process Manager with your edition
    from the product selector, the installed version to the fix pack
    level, and your platform, and then click Continue.
        2. Select APAR or SPR, enter JR54397, and click Continue.
    
    When you download fix packages, ensure that you also download
    the readme file for each fix. Review each readme file for
    additional installation instructions and information about the
    fix.
