    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When the plugin configuration is generated, it normally
    contains the ServerIOTImeoutRetry setting and provides a
    default of -1 (retry all servers in the cluster). There are
    situations where the setting may not exist in the
    configuration (for example, standalone plugin configurations
    are merged). When the setting does not exist in the plugin
    configuration, plugin was defaulting to no retries (0).
    

Problem conclusion

  • Corrected the setting to default to -1 (retry all servers)
    when ServerIOTimeoutRetry does not exist in plugin's
    configuration file.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.18 and 9.0.5.5. For more information, see 'Recommended
