  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The server configuration may include snippets of
    configuration from separate files. These configuration
    snippets may be specified as optional.
    
    The optional server configuration snippets can use
    configuration variables. For example:
    <include optional="true"
    location="${env.LOCATION-config.xml}" />
    In the above example, if ${env.LOCATION} is not specified,
    the server creates an FFDC with the exception:
    
    com.ibm.wsspi.kernel.service.location.MalformedLocationExcep
    tion: Unable to resolve symbolic path
