PLGC0049E appears when attempting to propagate the web server plugin in WebSphere.
IHS Admin Server
On the IHS web server, ensure the admin server is running.
~]# ps -ef | grep admin nobody 12345 1234 0 07:04 ? 00:00:00 -f /path/to/admin.conf -k start
Ensure the admin server URL produces a page prompting you for your username and password.
When you provide your username and password, the following page should be displayed. This is normal, and not suggestive of a problem. This confirms you are using the appropriate username and password.
- In the dmgr, select Servers > Server types > Web servers.
- Select your web server.
- Select Remote web server management.
- Ensure the port, username, and password being used are the same you used in the prior steps.
When you attempt to propagate the plugin, the directory where the plugin is being propagated to will be displayed. In this example, the directory is /opt/IBM/WebSphere/Plugins/config/was.software.eng.us. Ensure the user (john.doe in this example) has write permission to the directory. Setting the user as the owner of the directory with rwx (read write execute) permissions will ensure the user has permission to write to the directory.
chown john.doe /opt/IBM/WebSphere/Plugins/config/was.software.eng.us chmod u+rwx /opt/IBM/WebSphere/Plugins/config/was.software.eng.us
If the plugin-cfg.xml file already exists in the target directory, remove the plugin-cfg.xml file.
You should now be able to propagate the plugin.
