Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of WebSphere Application Server   *
    *                  Compute Grid                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Upon a restart of a top level job and a *
    *                      child job, the child job ends normally  *
    *                      while the parent job fails.             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Upon the restart of a top level job and child job, due to a
    missing call to the transaction begin() method, the top level
    job
    fails and returns to restartable state. In the meantime the
    child
    job ends correctly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Compute Grid runtime code was updated to correctly call the
    begin() method as part of the Top Level Job restart action.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    WebSphere Compute Grid fixpack 8.0.0.5.
