I am running into a peculiar problem with AM 5.1.1 where updating hot-swappable properties like “com.iplanet.services.debug.level” using ssoadm’s update-server-cfg require AM servers to be restarted.
The command runs successfully, list-server-cfg shows the update values but debug logs just wouldn’t show up until AM is restarted.SM caching is enabled, changes are persisted in config store when browsed via ldap. Replication isn’t broken.
This is a HA environment with a cluster of replicated configuration stores.
Debug logs, when enabled after restart, haven’t pointed to anything obvious.
