APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In a cluster, once a server is stopped, a javacore file is
    created on the node agent.  The server is stopped via normal
    processes, such as the stopServer script.
    
    The node agent which manages the server reports the following
    error in the native_stderr.log:
    
    Time: [0x5247c4f5], Process: [7408], Thread: [0xa38]: Binding to
    process [10004] using the most limited and still useful access
    rights failed.  Giving up and reporting an error.
    
    Time: [0x5247c4f5], Process: [7408], Thread: [0xa38]: Bind
    failed with return code: [87]
    
    JVMDUMP034I User requested Java dump using
    'C:\...\javacore.20130929.083522.7408.0001.txt' through
    com.ibm.jvm.Dump.JavaDump
    
    JVMDUMP010I Java dump written to
    C:\...\javacore.20130929.083522.7408.0001.txt
    
    This happens on any stopping occurrence for any server in the
    cluster.
    

Local fix

  • Specify the following JVM Custom property on the nodeagent
    generating the javacores:
    
    Name:  com.ibm.ws.management.enableJavaCore
    Value:  false
