Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server web        *
    *                  server plugin users using Intelligent       *
    *                  Management                                  *
    ****************************************************************

    *                      configuration is dynamically updated    *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Intelligent Management can not be dynamically enabled and
    disabled (it requires a complete web server restart). The
    check to ensure it is not dynamically updated did not check
    for a null pointer and could crash.
