Error description

  • Apar PI55683 shipped an updated collector.sh script in
    8.0.0.13 and 8.5.5.10. The script should be replaced by
    updateCollectorScript.ant invoked during WAS upgrade.
    
    However, updateCollectorScript.ant will not update the
    collector.sh script with the PI55683 fix, if
    "-Dfile.encoding=ISO8859-1"
    is present in the collector.sh script.
    
    The "-Dfile.encoding=ISO8859-1" line was added to the
    collector.sh script in 8.5.5.7 and 8.0.0.10.
    
    Therefore, if the system before upgrade is at level:
    8.0.0.9 or earlier
    or
    8.5.5.6 or earlier
    the upgrade to 8.0.0.13/8.5.5.10 will contain updated script
    as part of PI55683 fix as expected.
    
    However, if the system before upgrade is at level:
    8.0.0.10 or later
    or
    8.5.5.7 or later
    the upgrade to 8.0.0.13/8.5.5.10 or later (until this apar
    ships) will NOT contain updated script as it should have been as
    part of PI55683 fix.
    
    This APAR will fix updateCollectorScript.ant, so that the
    PI55683 fix applies for all scenarios.

    ****************************************************************
    The collector.sh script does get updated with the fix from APAR
    PI55683, when IBM WebSphere Application Server gets updated from
    8.0.0.10/8.5.5.7 or later. Hence, there maybe
    duplicate "-Dfile.encoding=ISO8859-1" and "$EXTRA_D_ARGS"
    variables
    with missing backslashes in the script, causing the collector.sh
    script for z/OS to not work properly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR fixes the duplicate variables in
    the collector.sh script if IBM WebSphere Application Server was
    updated from 8.0.0.10/8.5.5.7 or later. This APAR will
    ensure that the APAR PI55683 is correctly applied and makes sure
    the collector.sh script for z/OS works properly.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 8.0.0.15 and 8.5.5.13.  Please refer to the Recommended
    Updates page for delivery information:
