    Disabling an applications 'Target Specific Application Status'
    while the application is running results in 404/503 returns code
    from On Demand Routers (ODR), Intelligent Management enabled web
    servers, and the ODR feature of DataPower until the application
    is restarted on all servers.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The On Demand Configuration (ODC) component has been altered to
    properly handle disablement of an applications 'Target Specific
    Application Status' while the application is running avoiding
    the invalid routing behavior.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    packs 8.5.5.13 and 9.0.0.5.  Please refer to the Recommended
    Updates page for delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • After disabling an application's 'Target Specific Application
    Status', restart all running instances of the effected
    application.
