APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The configDropins/defaults directory contents are shared
    between controllers in a collective.  This makes it an
    inappropriate location for the config file generated by the
    --createConfigFile option of the collective create and
    collective replicate commands.  The collective utility does
    not prevent this location from being specified.

    ****************************************************************
    The configDropins/defaults directory contents are shared between
    controllers in a collective.  This makes it an inappropriate
    location for the config file generated by the --createConfigFile
    option of the collective create and collective replicate
    commands.  The collective utility does not prevent this location
    from being specified.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The collective utility now prevents a file in the the
    configDropins/defaults directory from being specified for the
    config file location in the collective create and collective
    replicate commands.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 16.0.0.3.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
