Error description

  • When a server is stopped an exception and possible FFDC is
    output because the server is attempting to generate a
    plugin-cfg.xml file but resources required for the
    generation are no longer available. This is most likely to
    happens in servers with multiple applications that stopped
    almost immediately after starting. An example exception:
    
    Stack Dump = java.lang.IllegalStateException: BundleContext
