The following items (identified by error tracking number) are fixed in the current software release. To display details about each software fix, click the error tracking number. To hide details, click again.

QXCR1000308394: :_SERVER-PCT_GEN returns servers that are not supposed to be restarted.
PROBLEM: Notification messages sent to message browser each time a Tuxedo server (that is allowed to be restarted) restarts. This causes a large amount of notification messages on the message browser.
CAUSE: There was no condition to check whether the RESTART(TA_RESTART) value in the UBBConfig file was set to Y for a specific Tuxedo server. Y indicates that the specific Tuxedo server can be restarted. Therefore, the metric SERVER-PCT_GEN was calculated for all Tuxedo servers that were restarted.
FIX: This problem is addressed by providing a that checks if the RESTART(TA_RESTART) value in the UBBConfig file was set to Y for a specific Tuxedo server. This prevents notification messages on the message browser from Tuxedo servers that are allowed to be restarted.
QXCR1000287010:_OVOW-Documentation: TMSYSEVT should be enabled as a prerequisite
PROBLEM: Documentation does not include the information about configuring and starting the TMSYSEVT server of the Tuxedo system as a prerequisite for receiving system event monitoring information from all the machines in the domain.
CAUSE: Defect identified post release.
FIX: This information is now updated in the Tuxedo SPI documentation.
