Known Issues

Incorrect Port Numbers

BEA has discovered that some Solaris JVMs report an incorrect IP number. The reported IP number for the machine is the first number in the /etc/hosts file. Unfortunately, the first number in /etc/hosts is frequently, the standard loopback network address for the machine. This problem affects licenses, where a license is granted for a specific IP number.

This problem also occurs in a cluster in which an HTTP request is passed by a Web server or another WebLogic Server, via the HttpClusterServlet, to a WebLogic Server running on a Solaris machine with this configuration problem. The IP number is carried with the server's response. Subsequent calls to that machine time out because of the incorrect IP number.

To determine whether this problem exists on your Solaris system, run the following command:

java utils.netAddresses

If you see in the output, ask the system administrator to move the computer's network IP address to the beginning of the /etc/hosts file.

Serial Version UID Mismatch

A Serial Version UID Mismatch Issue may be encountered if you deploy an application on a latest JVM, but compiled with an earlier JDK release.

Workaround: To be compatible with the serialization of previously compiled applications, modify the <BEA_HOME>/Weblogic90/common/bin/ file to include the following command:

JAVA_OPTIONS="$JAVA_OPTIONS -Dcom.sun.xml.namespace.QName.useCompatibleSerialVersionUID=1.0"

Alternatively, you can use the command line option:

export JAVA_OPTIONS="$JAVA_OPTIONS -Dcom.sun.xml.namespace.QName.useCompatibleSerialVersionUID=1.0"

Note: If you intend to deploy new applications with previously compiled applications, they must be recompiled as necessary to have the same Serial Version UID.
