    ****************************************************************
    When merging XMLs that contain both like and different ports
    within their VirtualHostGroups, the merge tool will create
    erroneous URI groups that don't configure to any server
    cluster.  These extra ports are typically those defined to the
    transports within each of the servercluster's servers.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The merge tool has been modified to accept two new parameters.
    -ignoreTransportPorts: This tells the merge tool to remove all
    transport ports from any of the virtualhostgroups before merge.
    -ignorePorts: This provides a pipe delimited list of ports
    that the merge tool needs remove from all virtualhostgroups
    before merging.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.17 and 9.0.5.2.  Please refer to the Recommended
