XA Errors on server startup after an ungraceful shutdown of WebSphere Portal v6

Posted by Vivek Agarwal on November 14, 2007

There is a new technote out about an issue that I have seen in the past with WebSphere Portal v6 on a test server, where you find XA errors in SystemOut.log during server startup after WP6 was shutdown ungracefully – for example, on a Windows server reboot after installing a Windows update. Resolving the error was relatively straightforward and involved clearing the transaction logs.

The technote published by IBM explains the scenario, the observed symptoms, and what to do to resolve the issue. You can find this technote titled Shutdown immediate can cause corrupt transactions and affect subsequent server startup here. I figured that I would highlight it as I would have found it useful when I first encountered these errors.
