  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If there is Java exception issued by OSGI code, log is created
    in the file system with the name <number>.log. The default locat
    ions:
    WAS_HOME/configuration
    WAS_HOME/profiles/*/configuration
    WAS_HOME/profiles/*/servers/*/configuration
    
    However, these files are not being captured by the collector
    tool on z/OS.
    This is because ProfileRoot variable is null, so profile's
    configuration directories are not collected.
