Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server that want to use mail notification   *
    *                  with the certificate monitor.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The mail notification the certificate   *
    *                      monitor uses does not allow user to     *
    *                      specify a port and other mail           *
    *                      specific properties.                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The mail notification the certificate monitor uses does not
    allow user to specify a port and other mail specific
    properties.  So the mail server is confined to the default
    SMTP port and may SMTP servers now days are only setup for a
    secure connection.  Need a way to allow users to access SMTP
    ports different from the default.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Adding a custom property that will allow users to use the
    WebSphere mail resouce definition for the SMTP server used
    used by the certificate monitor.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.14 and 9.0.0.9.  Please refer to the
