APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Given an application process that runs multiple concurrent
    component processes, each of which attempt to set properties,
    will intermittently fail due to exceeding the max number of
    retries on the plugin step "Set X Property". This occurs when
    concurrency is not limited to 1 and occurrences increases with
    number of concurrent processes modifying the same type (e.g.,
    Application/Environment/Component) of property.
    

Local fix

  • Limit concurrency of the plugin step until the intermittent
    failures have stopped occurring.
