Error description

  • After installing fix pack 7.0.0.21 from 7.0.0.19, you encounter
    issues while using the Admin Console.  The symbolic link between
    the config root and the install root for the console-defs.idx
    in isclite is broken.  This causes the console-defs.idx to be
    out of sync.
    
    Admin console panels may be missing server information. You see
    messages like the following:
    
    Error404
    
    An error occurred while processing
    request:%2Fibm%2Fconsole%2Fwebcontainer.config.view
    
    Message:SRVE0190E: File not found:
    
    or
    
    [Exception in:null] null
    
    or
    
    In DefinitionsXmlParser parse Exception occurred org.xml.sax.
    SAXParseException: The value of attribute "extends" associated
    with an element type "definition" must not contain the '<'
    character.
    org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The value of attribute "extends"
    associated with an element type "definition" must not contain
    the '< ' character.
    

Local fix

  • Relink the console-defs.idx in the config root and install root.
    Note: these commands should be entered on one line
    1. rm
    <config_root>/systemApps/isclite.ear/isclite.war/WEB-INF/console
    -defs.idx
    2. ln -s
    <install_root>/systemApps/isclite.ear/isclite.war/WEB-INF/consol
    e-defs.idx
    <config_root>/systemApps/isclite.ear/isclite.war/WEB-INF/console
    -defs.idx
