Error description

  • Customer detected that switching to rolling update resulted  in
    interruption of their MDB processing - message  J2CA0520W,
    Root cause was determined to be with  the underlying
    implementation of the PAUSELISTENER and then RESUMELISTENER
    code - management code is issuing a PAUSE
    but is not waiting for it to complete before issuing the RESUME
    and the WAS z/OS native code  rejects the RESUME because of
    that.
    
    Fix is to update the code to  apply the JVM server stop
    wait custom property to the pause command. With that, customer
    can adjust the custom property to wait for the pause command.
    

Local fix

  • Manually resume activation specs as needed.

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    If application servers are configured to be paused rather than
    stopped during an application rollout update, the deployment
    manager waits for 10 seconds for a server to pause. If an
    application server is resumed before the pause is complete, an
    error similar to the following will occur in the log:
    13.42.45 STC31052  BBOO0298E SERVER RDL3/QR3NODE/QR3LR1 IS
    CURRENTLY  MODIFYING  073
    073             COMMUNICATION LISTENERS. THE
    RESUMELISTENERS MODIFY OPTION IS NOT
    073             ALLOWED AT THIS TIME.
    13.42.45 STC31052  BBOO0211I MODIFY COMMAND RESUMELISTENERS
    COMPLETED  WITH ERRORS
    

Problem conclusion

  • Allow a custom property,
    com.ibm.websphere.zos.rollout.pause.waitTimeout, in the node
    agent configuration to specify in seconds how long the
    deployment manager waits for a server to pause. This property
    must be added to the settings for all of the node agents on
    which you want to provide a longer length of time to pause the
    servers instead of the default 10 seconds.
    
    Follow the step below to configure the new custom property:
    1.In the administrative console, click System Administration >
    Node agents >  Administrative Services > Custom Properties >
    New
    2.Enter com.ibm.websphere.zos.rollout.pause.waitTimeout in
    the Name field, and the wait time in seconds in the Value field.
    3.Click OK.
    4.Click Save to save your changes to the master configuration.
    5.Restart the node agent.
