Error description

  • After a Chaneg to the ProcessDef  the StartComandArgs and
    StopCommandArgs  are writtent one line in ProcessDef of the
    server.mxl.. This can occurr when the AdminConfig.modify
    Command  is used to update the Start or Stop Command Arguments.
    In order to prevent the mis formatt of the ProcessDef
    commandAgrs the AdminConfig.modify command Must separate the
    StartCommandArgs and StopCommandArgs using SemiColon.
    For Example:
    1.You must aleways Clear  the CommandArgs first
    AdminConfig.modify(procDef, '[ [startCommandArgs ""]]')
    
    2. Use SemiColons between CommandArgs
    AdminConfig.modify(procDef, '[ [startCommandArgs
    "-k;stop;-n;IBMHTTPServerV8.0;-f;${WEB_INSTALL_ROOT}/conf/newweb
    .conf"]]
    ')
    
    Update to command assist would help avoid this problem in
    future
