    ****************************************************************
    When executing the findEJBTimer script, the following error is
    received:
    00000001 EJBTimersComm E CNTR9100E: Exception
    com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.ConnectorException:
    com.ibm.ws.management.connector.ipc.RetryCandidateException:
    java.io.IOException: Connection close: Read failed. Possible
    end of stream encountered.
    This failure is because the server write operation via the
    IPCConnector has timed out.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added a JVM property (com.ibm.ws.ipc.serverWriteTimeout) By
    setting it with a value in seconds), the user can increase the
    timeout of the IPC Connection during a write operation. by
    default, the value is 60 seconds.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    9.0.5.7 and 8.5.5.19. For more information, see 'Recommended
    Updates for WebSphere Application Server':
