Error description

  • After removing the server which is mapped to the scope of
    dynamic SSL, server fails to start due to NullPointerException
    during initializing dynamic SSL configuration.
    This problem occurs after applying WAS V8.0.0.7. When removing
    the server, <managementScopes> entries are deleted from
    security.xml. In addition to the <managementScopes> tag,
    "managementScope="ManagementScope_1" is removed from
    <dynamicSSLConfigSelections> tag.  Whole entry of the dynamic
    SSL should be removed but the last part of
    <dynamicSSLConfigSelections> tag is removed.
    

Local fix

  • Manually remove the whole section of dynamic SSL configuration
    from security.xml.
