    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: A WOLA link server in CICS may hang     *
    *                      when its Liberty server instance is     *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    A WOLA link server running in a CICS region connects to a
    WebSphere Liberty Profile server instance.  If that server
    instance is cancelled, the WOLA connections used by that server
    may not go thru close processing.  This will cause the link
    server to hang.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code was added to ensure that WOLA connection close processing
    completes when the Liberty server is cancelled.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 8.5.5.9.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
