Regression in 6.5.4
SPR# TPOK6CKQW4 - This fix prevents an intermittent server crash during HTTP refresh. This regression was introduced in 6.5.4. The problem appeared because an array of pointers was not properly initialized on the iSeries platform. As a result, if the memory allocated to hold the configuration pointers happened to contain an old pointer, a code change in 6.5.4 would attempt to use the pointer in an incorrect way resulting in either MCH3601 or MCH3602 errors.
A workaround to this problem would be to set the HTTPConfigRefreshTimeout=1440 parameter in the Notes.ini. Please note that the timeout is in minutes, so 1440 is 24 hours. Basically, you should adjust the time to be larger than the expected uptime of the Domino Server to avoid a crash. Also, as part of this workaround, avoid issuing the "tell http refresh" command at the Domino Console or via any program document or Agent.
What is an APAR?
