    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    After running WASPostUpgrade the order of the loginModules in
    the security.xml have changed when compared to the
    security.xml from the source release. This can potentially
    cause authentication issues after a migration.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WASPostUpgrade logic has been updated to preserve the
    ordering of the loginModules.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.4 and 8.5.5.12.  Please refer to the Recommended
