APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Migration thinks that any configuration data provided by the new
    target profile template is new and remains untouched if not
    found in the old profile.
    When the untouched configurations reside in lower level than
    the configurations on old profile, then the untouched
    configurations will be taken in the migrated profile and may
    cause some issue.
    

Local fix

  • Delete the useless configurations after migration.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server migration commands                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: WASPostUpgrade is adding back in the    *
    *                      SERVER_LOG_ROOT variable that was       *
    *                      deleted in the old config.              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The SERVER_LOG_ROOT variable was standardized in a higher
    level variables.xml and deleted from the server level
    variables.xml by the customer.  It reappeared at the server
    level after migration completed.  It was added in by the
    profile creation because it is part of the template.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Check it the SERVER_LOG_ROOT variable exists in the old
    variables.xml at the server level.  If so deleted it from the
    new target profile during WASPostUpgrade.
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.7 and 8.5.5.14.  Please refer to the
