Last updated on FEBRUARY 05, 2019

Application got a problem from jndi NameNotFoundException.

NameNotFoundException is thrown when implementing the following steps:

1. Migrate jms service within ms01 to ms02(migration success)
2. Shutdown ms01
3. Start ms01
4. During starting ms01 process, the application deployed at ms01 got jndi name not found exception and server start failed since application start failed.
