APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • WebServer virtual host creation failure
    

Local fix

  • When running the createSelfSignedCertificate command, do not
    specify the signatureAlgorithm nor certSize so that WAS will
    default to signature algorithm SHA256RSA and key size of 2048
    bits.

    ****************************************************************
    Self signed certificates should be created using the default
    certSize.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Changes were made so that the default certSize is used when
    creating a web server virtual host.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
