    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server programmatically creating a          *
    *                  DistributedMap with replicated enabled.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: An IllegalArgumentException is          *
    *                      observed in an FFDC and replication     *
    *                      is disabled.                            *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a DistributedMap is created programmatically using a
    Properties object the dynacache engine is not creating the
    DRSSettings object that is required for replication.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The dynacache engine will create the DRSSettings object for
    programmatically created DistributedMaps.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.20 and 9.0.5.7.
