Error description

  • When migrating from 6.1 to 7.0 the migration job fails with:
    java.lang.NullPointerException

Local fix

  • If you remove the SIB configuration setup before you migrate you
    will avoid the problem and everything else should migrate....
    except of course your SIB configuration.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0 and V8.0                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: A NullPointerException occurs while     *
    *                      processing Service Integration Bus      *
    *                      members during migration.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    If the Service Integration Bus contains members that are not
    WebSphere Application Server members, then the references can
    fail to resolve.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Add a check to verify that the member being copied is indeed a
    WebSphere Application Server member.
    
    APAR PM48044 is currently targeted for inclusion in
    Fix Packs 7.0.0.23 and 8.0.0.3 of WebSphere Application
    Server.
    
    Please refer to URL:
    //www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=404&uid=swg27006970
    for Fix Pack availability.
    

Temporary fix

  • Temporarily remove the non-WebSphere Application Server items
    from the Service Integration Bus before migration, and re-add
    the entries after migration.
