Error description

  • Virtual member manager (VMM) database repository contains an
    attribute that is not part of the schema, the get(*) [get all
    properties of a user] results in an Exception which is caused
    by a NullPointerException.
    
    Description: We have a setup where a 6.0 WebSphere Portal is
    migrated to 6.1. The 6.0 Portal has websphere member
    manager database repository => The 6.1 Portal has virtual
    member manager database repository. In 6.0, 'ou' is a valid
    attribute for a user. thus, the ou attribute is migrated,
    including the values, to the 6.1 virtual member manager
    database. However, the virtual member manager attribute schema
    says that 'ou' is only valid for OrganizationalUnit, not for
    users.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of WebSphere Application Server   *
    *                  v6.1 who use federated repositories         *
    *                  (virtual member manager).                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Getting attribute 'o/ou' value for      *
    *                      PersonAccount will cause                *
    *                      NullPointerException after virtual      *
    *                      member manager migration.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    In Websphere Member Manager (WMM), attributes 'o' and 'ou' are
    defined for entity Person, but these attributes are not defined
    for entity PersonAccount in virtual member manager (VMM).
    If you use these attributes for Person in WMM, after WMM to
    VMM migration, there will be a NullPointerException thrown
    when getting PersonAccount with these attributes.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The problem has been fixed, no NullPointerException will be
    thrown.
    If you still wants to use these attributes for PersonAccount
    after migration, please add these attributes for
    PersonAccount according to WebSphere Portal documentation.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 6.1.0.21.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
