    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The WAS_HOME/bin/setupCmdLine script calls the
    WAS_PROFILE/bin/setupCmdLine script to set required WAS_PROFILE
    properties. However, it sets WAS_CLASSPATH after calling the
    WAS_PROFILE/bin/setupCmdLine script and then overwrites
    WAS_CLASSPATH which is set by the WAS_PROFILE/bin/setupCmdLine
    script
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix is to skip the setting of WAS_CLASSPATH if
    WAS_PROFILE/bin/setupCmdLine script is called.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.12 and 9.0.0.4.  Please refer to the Recommended
