Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server using datasources logging FFDC.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Turn off some datasource and adapter    *
    *                      config dump in FFDC                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    By default, WebSphere writes current datasource and adapter
    configuration into FFDC file. In case datasource and
    adapter configuration
    contains sensitive information, it is good to remove the
    datasource and adapter configuration in the FFDC file.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This apar will remove some of the datasource and adapter
    configuration information into FFDC file.
    
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.19 and 9.0.5.6. For more information, see 'Recommended
