Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server using the administrative console     *
    *                  with default scope set in the console       *
    *                  preferences.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: There is no virtualhost.xml file the    *
    *                      default scope and changes made via      *
    *                      the console are not used by runtime.    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Uncheck "Use default scope" in the console  *
    *                  preferences panel.                          *
    ****************************************************************
    The changes to the virtual host file were made to a new file
    in the node scope rather than where it needs to be, in the
    cell scope.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code for the virtual hosts will always use cell scope.
