    SystemExit exception at the end (although the command completed
    successfully).
    

Problem conclusion

  • WebSphere Network Deployment v9 moves up from python v2.1 to
    v2.7 which introduces some backward compatible issues.  In the
    case of workclassoperations.py it exits the script with
    sys.exit() without capturing the exception SystemExit, which is
    OK in python v2.1 but throws exception in python v2.7, even
    though the command executes successfully.  This fix will capture
    the SystemExit exception.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 9.0.0.1.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
    delivery information:

Temporary fix

  • Update the following property in the
    WAS_HOME/properties/wsadmin.properties and
    WAS_PROFILE_HOME/properties/wsadmin.properties to set it to
    "true".  (The default is "false".)  Then, rerun the script.
