Error description

  • There is currently a maximum limit of 200 on the number of files

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: There is currently a maximum limit of   *
    *                      200 on the number of files              *
    *                      that can set for historical             *

    *                      inside the Administrative Console.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The Administrative Console UI limits the number of files that
    can be set for SystemOut.log/SystemErr.log files as 200, and
    it is not recommended for users to change the maximum
    historical file property in the server.xml due to possible
    synchronization issues.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This limit has been removed in the Administrative Console so
    users can set the value of maximum number of files to any
    integer greater than 0.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.19 and 9.0.5.7. For more information, see 'Recommended
