Error description

  • When running Liberty profile's featureManager command (for
    example, to install a new feature), the command may appear
    to hang indefinitely. This can occur if there is a network
    issue, preventing communication between featureManager and
    the Liberty Repository

    When running Liberty profile's featureManager command (for
    example, to install a new feature), the command may appear to
    hang indefinitely. This can occur if there is a network issue,
    preventing communication between featureManager and the Liberty
    Repository
    

Problem conclusion

  • A timeout has been introduced, so that if there is a problem
    connecting to the repository, the featureManager command will
    exit with an error message (rather then hanging)
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 8.5.5.8.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
    delivery information:

Temporary fix

  • If the featureManager command hangs, the command can be killed
    and re-tried.
