APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If Addnode is done on a generic node, and the web server
    definition is created from the WebSphere iSeries Adminconsole,
    then an invalid path is defined for property "PluginInstallRoot"
    Value="/QIBM/ProdData/WebSphere/Plugins/V80/webserver/"
    
    Problem encountered on WebSphere for iSeries version 8.5.5.11
    and 8.5.5.12
    iSeries AS/400 version 7.1.0
    

Local fix

  • To use the same Node.webserverName
    
    1) From the WebSphere Admin console, delete any existing web
    server definition
    2) Recreate a new web server definition
    3) Remove any incorrect paths shown and input the correct Web
    server and PluginInstallRoot paths
    4) Regenerate a new plugin-cfg.xml
    5) Propagate the Plug-in.  Propagate is not necessary if the
    Apache httpd.conf file on the web server has the plugin-cfg.xml
    path that directly points to the plugin-cfg.xml file generated
    at the cell/node level in the WebSphere application server.
