Steps to Reproduce



Try deploying VBD ear file to WebSphere application server.

Root Cause



User was trying to deploy incorrect VBD ear file in the WebSphere. We were able to establish this difference after comparing the manifest build file (META-INF) inside the VBD ear file being used by the user and the DSM media kit.

Resolution



Installing the correct VBD ear file from the DSM media kit has resolved the deployment issue.
