Error description

  • If an app server was created based on a custom template,
    server.xml may contain name tag with template name that was used
    to create it and ID tag with "-1".  Both of these tags are not
    there unless specific sequence of events happens to create the
    server. The additional tags don't seem to cause any problems or
    errors.
    
    example:
    
    <components xmi:type="applicationserver:ApplicationServer"
    xmi:id="ApplicationServer_1487907827534"
    name="Template_2" id="-1"                <--- tags to be removed
    applicationClassLoaderPolicy="MULTIPLE"
    applicationClassLoadingMode="PARENT_FIRST">

    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When changing values on a server        *
    *                      template, attributes for namd and id    *
    *                      are created. These attributes causes    *

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Modify the server instead of the template.  *
    *                  THen use the new server as a new template   *
    *                  rather than modifying the template.         *
    ****************************************************************
    The template code adds attributes that are not used by server
    code and cause a problem with the server runtime.
