Error description

  • The migration from WebSphere Application Server V6.1 to
    WebSphere Application Server V8.5 completes but the
    OVERLAY_TCP_LISTENER_ADDRESS and  OVERLAY_UDP_LISTENER_ADDRESS
    ports are not added to the serverindex.xml of the nodeagent
    and application servers.
    -
    The WASPostUpgrade trace shows:
    nodeagent@OVERLAY_UDP_LISTENER_ADDRESS
    com.ibm.wsspi.migration.document.wccm.WCCMDocument@ee871327
    :serverindex.xml
    ?3/18/13 11:38:28:126 EDT? 00000001 ServerConfigC 1
    Exceptable exception.  Likely caused by server existing in new
    configuration, but not old configuration.
    java.net.URISyntaxException: Illegal character in path
    at index 16:
    file:/D:/Program Files/IBM/Websphere/AppServer/profiles/
    AppSrv01/config/cells/Cell01/nodes/Node01/serverindex.xml
    at java.net.URI$Parser.fail(URI.java:2821)
    at java.net.URI$Parser.checkChars(URI.java:2994)
    ...
    -
    When the application server is started this error is issued
    in the systemout.log:
    ODCF8005E: There was an unexpected exception while
    initializing  the SON overlay; the exception is
    java.io.IOException: The P2P layer was unable to bind to a UDP
    port.
    -
    The error is seen when the WebSphere Application Server
    install location has a space, such as the one in
    "Program Files".
    

Local fix

  • The ports can be manually added to the nodeagent and app servers
    to allow the application servers to start,
     1. Start DMGR. Stop nodeagent and app servers.
     2. From the Admin Console
         System Adminstration > nodeagents > nodeagent > ports >
     3. NEW
         check user-defined port
         Port name: OVERLAY_TCP_LISTENER_ADDRESS
         hoast: localhost
         port 11007
         OK
     4. NEW
         check user-defined port
         Port name: OVERLAY_UDP_LISTENER_ADDRESS
         hoast: localhost
         port 11008
         OK

     7. NEW
         check user-defined port
          Port name: OVERLAY_TCP_LISTENER_ADDRESS

          OK
     8. NEW
          check user-defined port
          Port name: OVERLAY_UDP_LISTENER_ADDRESS
          hoast: localhost
          port 11010
          OK
     9. SAVE
    10. Run the syncNode cmd on the node's profile bin directory
         > ./syncNode.sh  localhost 8879 -trace -username xxx
             -password yyyy
    11. Start the nodeagent and the app server.
    12. IF you still have trouble, run the collector cmd again.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: During migration to Wesphere            *
    *                      Application Server v8.5, the profile    *
    *                      template adds new server endpoints,     *
    *                      but migration fails to insert them      *
    *                      into the migrated profile.              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When trying to insert the additions in the server template to
    the nodeagent of the profile, an error occurs if the path to
    the template file has a space in it.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed the code so that the path to the template file can
    include a space and the migration code will tolerate it.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.29, 8.0.0.7, and 8.5.5.1.  Please refer to the
