    ****************************************************************
    When running server configuratino validation, a validation
    message showing message code "CHKW3706E" occurs.  For example:
    WASX7190I: Validation at level HIGHEST with cross-document
    validation enabled, requested at Jun 15, 2016 6:40:33 AM for
    action "validate"
    WASX7195I: Severity 1; line 0; target "null";   CHKW3706E:
    Failed to validate contents of file
    cells/gsV900Cell/nodes/node2/servers/gsServer1/resources.xml,
    Exception java.lang.ClassCastException
    The validation message is generated because of a program
    fault, not because of an actual problem of the server
    configuration.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The validation error occured because a new type of resource
    element was introduced which the validation code was unable to
    handle.
    
    The problem was fixed by updating the validation code to
    properly handle the new resource type.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.1.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
