Error description

  • Performing remote migration from WebSphere Application Server
    V7 to V8.5.5 is changing hostname variables of deployment
    manager's IPC_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS and nodeagent's
    NODE_IPV6_MULTICAST_DISCOVERY_ADDRESS, those were changed to
    actual host names of the servers.
    
    Before migration:
    Dmgr: IPC_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS ---> ${LOCALHOST_NAME}
    Nodeagent: NODE_IPV6_MULTICAST_DISCOVERY_ADDRESS ---> ff01::1
    
    After migration:
    Dmgr: IPC_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS ---> Actual hostname of the server
    Nodeagent: NODE_IPV6_MULTICAST_DISCOVERY_ADDRESS ---> Actual
    hostname of the server
    

Local fix

  • Manually modify the serverindex.xml file and update the
    original values.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Migration Tools                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The IPC connector endpoint's hostname   *
    *                      is changing during a remote migration   *
    *                      to the new target machine host name     *
    *                      replacing the localhost variable.       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Remote migrations are not detecting the use of variables in
    the endpoint's host setting and is replacing it with new
    target machine's hostname.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed the code to see if the hostname uses a variable. We also
    check to see if the variable is "localhost" and if so leave it
    as is.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.11 and 9.0.0.2.  Please refer to the
