    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Plugin configuration generation may     *
    *                      show transport with ConnectionTTL=0     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Define custom property                      *
    *                  Plugin_PersistTimeOut_Reduction prior to    *
    *                  configuration generation (suggested value   *
    *                  2) until fixpack containing correction is   *
    *                  applied.                                    *
    ****************************************************************
    When the plugin-cfg.xml shows a transport with
    ConnectionTTL=0, it is not a valid transport and most likely
    is a duplicate of a valid transport.
    

Problem conclusion

  • If a custom property for Plugin_PersistTimeOut_Reduction (see
    apar PM76420 for details on this property) is not defined, the
    internal value may use 0 instead of the default value of 2 and
    this causes the invalid transport to be added. Code has been
    corrected to ensure correct default value.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.45, 8.0.0.15, 8.5.5.14 and 9.0.0.7.  Please
    refer to the Recommended Updates page for delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • Duplicate transport with ConnectionTTL="0" can be manually
    removed from plugin-cfg.xml or Plugin_PersistTimeOut_Reduction
    custom property can be set to 2 prior to configuration
    generation.
