Error description

  • When a user creates a new MailSession via the Admin Console and
    clicks the "View administrative scripting command for last
    action" link, the generated script is incomplete.
    Specifically, the script is missing the "mailTransportProtocol"
    attribute.  Attempting to use the script as-is in wsadmin
    results in binding issues at startup for that MailSession.
    
    Instead, the script should include the "mailTransportProtocol"
    attribute with a value set to the config id of the
    protocolProviders config object that equates to the protocol
    the user chose in the Admin Consolel panel.
    

Local fix

  • Users can manually add the "mailTransportProtocol" attribute
    and value to the wsadmin MailSession create command.  The
    attribute would look like this if you wanted to use the
    protocol called "builtin_smtp":
    
    [mailTransportProtocol
    "(cells/myCell/nodes/myNode/servers/server1|resources.xml#builti
    n_smtp)"]

    ****************************************************************
    If a user wants to creates a mail session and looks at the
    command assistance string provided by the console, the
    'mailTransportProtocol' attribute is not
    included. This attribute should be included in the command
    assistance string because it is a parameter that can be modified
    by the user on the console. The command
    assistance string should always reflect what paramaters were
    modified on the console.
