Fixed In:
14.0.0

Opened: Oct 19, 2017
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Several pages in the Acceleration tab (e.g., Acceleration :: Quick Start : Symmetric Properties) display a warning message that directs you to provision AAM in order to access WOM utilities. These pages are visible even if it is impossible for you to provision AAM, which is confusing.

Impact

The impact is cosmetic only. The page is confusing because it suggests that AAM can be provisioned without the proper license (e.g., that WOM/AAM can be set up with only an LTM license), which it cannot. You can safely ignore the warning messages.

Conditions

You have an iSeries platform with no AAM license.

Workaround

No workaround at this time.

Fix Information

GUI elements for WAM/WOM/AAM are no longer visible on iSeries platforms.
