Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Performing an application update        *
    *                      operation results in a message saying   *
    *                      that a file could not be deleted.       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The application update process triggers several file
    operations on the instance of the deployed operation on the
    file system, including delete and copy operations.  On the a
    Microsoft Windows operating system, which is strict about file
    locking, a failure to close an application archive resulted in
    a warning message when the update process attempts to delete
    the file, and the update operation fails.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Proper closure method calls were added in the relevant areas
    of the update process.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.43, 8.0.0.13, and 8.5.5.9.  Please refer to
