Error description

  • WAS HTTP Plugin 8.5.5.16 on Windows

    IIS_<webserver> copy of the binary:
    
    <PLG_INSTALL_ROOT>\bin\IIS_<webserver>\iisWASPlugin_http.dll
    
    It only updates the main binaries here:
    
    <PLG_INSTALL_ROOT>\bin\32bits\iisWASPlugin_http.dll
    <PLG_INSTALL_ROOT>\bin\64bits\iisWASPlugin_http.dll

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: After applying a Fixpack, the IIS       *
    *                      plugin dll isn't updated.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a plugin fixpack is applied on Windows, the remote copies
    of the iisWASPlugin_http.dll aren't copied from the
    plugin-home/bin/32|64bits folder to the other iis_webserver
    folder.
    

Problem conclusion

  • There was a change made to the Fixpack processing that will
    make copies of the iisWASPlugin_http.dll from the
    plugin-home/bin/32|64bits folder to all of the iis_webserver
    named folders.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    9.0.5.4 & 8.5.5.18.  For more information, see
