APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Set the WLP_OUTPUT_DIR to another directory. When running
    installUtility install serverName, the server logs and
    workarea are created under the same directory as the
    server.xml. It is expected that they should be created under
    the WLP_OUTPUT_DIR.

    *                      is run, the server logs and workarea    *

    ****************************************************************
    Set the WLP_OUTPUT_DIR to another directory. When installUtility
    install serverName is run, the server logs and workarea were
    still created under the same directory as the server.xml (that
    is: <user directory>/servers/serverName). It is expected that
    they should be created under the WLP_OUTPUT_DIR.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Although the logs and workarea directories were not created
    under the WLP_OUTPUT_DIR, it does not affect the command
    installUtility install serverName.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 16.0.0.2.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
    delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • No workaround is required. Make sure that the <user directory>
    is accessible. Clean up the logs and workarea directories if you
    don't want them left behind in the user directory.
