Error description

  • The collective join command using sshPrivateKey option fails
    with "Error: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: CWWKX9080E:
    The CollectiveRegistration MBean join operation could not be
    completed. The rpcUserPassword property,  the sshPrivateKey
    property or the useCollectiveSSHKEy property is required."
    when it cannot access the ssh key path specified.  The error
    message needs to be more specific to the root cause.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The collective join command issues a    *
    *                      misleading error when there is a        *
    *                      problem accessing the SSH key path      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    If the collective join command is invoked using the
    sshPrivateKey option but is unable to access the SSH key path
    specified by the option, it fails with the following error:
    
    Error: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: CWWKX9080E: The
    CollectiveRegistration MBean join operation could not be
    completed. The rpcUserPassword property,  the sshPrivateKey
    property or the useCollectiveSSHKEy property is required."
    
    The error message needs to be more relevant to the root cause
    and the command should be aborted right away once the SSH key
    path access problem is detected.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fix the collective join command implementation logic so that the
    command execution is aborted right away with an error resulting
    from faulty IO operation while it fails to access the ssh key
    path.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 18.0.0.2.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
