APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a collective controller detects that a member has
    missed three heart beats it marks that member and its
    applications as stopped.  If the member remains connected to
    the controller and subsequently resumes heart beating the
    controller marks the member and its applications as started.
    In the case where one or more of the applications is
    actually stopped then the Admin Center will have the
    incorrect application state.

    When a collective controller detects that a member has missed
    three heart beats it marks that member and its applications as
    stopped.  If the member remains connected to the controller and
    subsequently resumes heart beating the controller marks the
    member and its applications as started.  In the case where one
    or more of the applications is actually stopped then the Admin
    Center will have the incorrect application state.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix was made so that in the problem scenario, when a member
    resumes heart beating the Admin Center will recover the current
    state of the member?s applications.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 20.0.0.8.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
