Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Migration Tooling                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The set of ports used by the target     *
    *                      profile are the same as those used by   *
    *                      the source although -replacePorts       *
    *                      false and -portBlock was specified.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The -replacePorts false option is not assigning new port
    numbers for nodeagents, or for additional servers beyond the
    default provided by profile creation.   If a custom profile is
    used then all source ports were copied as-is to the target
    profile.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The -replacePorts false was making an incorrect logical
    decision and was skipping through the reassigning of ports.
    Once the above was corrected the -portBlock parameter was not
    being used correctly.  Logic was corrected for both.  Now it
    is working as specified in the Knowledge Center.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.0.0.11 and 8.5.5.5.  Please refer to the
