Error description

  • WLP_SKIP_UMASK=true in the server.env doesn't take affect
    when
    the Liberty Server is started using a proc.  In order to get
    it
    work, it has to be added in a file pointed to by the STDENV
    DD
    in the started procedure.
    
    This works as expected, if the Liberty Server is started
    from
    the shell using the wlp/bin/server script.
    

Local fix

  • Add WLP_SKIP_UMASK=true to the file used in the STDENV DD  in
    the Liberty Server started procedure
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Liberty Profile for z/OS             *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The variable WLP_SKIP_UMASK isn't       *
    *                      honored if it is set in server.env when *
    *                      the BBGZSRV proc is used to start the   *
    *                      server.                                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When starting a Liberty profile server on z/OS using the BBGZSRV
    proc, there are several places where environment variables can
    be specified.  When the WLP_SKIP_UMASK variable is specified in
    the STDENV DD of BBGZSRV, it functions correctly.  When
    WLP_SKIP_UMASK is set in a server.env file, and the proc is
    used, it is ignored.  This is incorrect, as the WLP_SKIP_UMASK
    variable functions correctly when the server is started with the
    wlp/bin/server script, and the WLP_SKIP_UMASK variable is
    defined in server.env.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code was added to honor the WLP_SKIP_UMASK variable when it is
    specified in a server.env file, and the server is started from
    the BBGZSRV proc.
    
    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
    delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • Specify WLP_SKIP_UMASK in the STDENV DD of the BBGZSRV proc.
