Error description

  • Migration jobs reported success when migrating from v8.5.5.14 to
    v9.0.0.11, but at runtime there was a loss of functionality.
    Reviewing the security.xml file from before and after the
    migration revealed that some dynamic outbound endpoint SSL
    configurations had not been carried forward to the new v9
    configuration.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: A number of the Dynamic SSL Outbound    *
    *                      endpoints are missing after migration.  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Loss of functionality due to missing Dynamic outboud SSL
    endpoints.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Migration was keying on the name field of the Dynamic outbound
    SSL endpoint definition to determine whether it was unique.
    However, the name field was was not unique across definitions
    causing the migration tooling to collapsed the commonly named
    definitions into one.  The migration tooling has been adjusted
    to look at the security ManagementScope and the
    DynamicSelectionInfo fields to determine whether a Dynamic
    outbound SSL endpoint definition is unique.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    9.0.5.4 and 8.5.5.18. For more information, see 'Recommended
