Subscribe

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The installation of Worklight Server fails when using a user
    name that contains non-ASCII characters.
    

Local fix

  • Use an account which has only ASCII characters in the user name
    to install Worklight Server. Use a multi-user installation (for
    example, with group 'Administrators') to allow the use of the
    product by the intended users.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  Users of Worklight 5.0.5 or earlier, on     *
    *                  Windows, with a user name                   *
    *                  that has non-ASCII characters, that is,     *
    *                  that does not entirely consist              *
    *                  of Latin letters and digits and ASCII       *
    *                  punctuation.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The installation of Worklight Server    *
    *                      fails. The install.log file             *
    *                      contains a line that mentions "exec     *
    *                      returned: 1332".                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The post-install.xml attempts to set the owner of some files,
    through the 'cacls' program, but the
    owner it passes was subject to character set conversion from
    ANSI codepage to OEM codepage
    and is therefore not recognized by the 'cacls' program.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was changed to avoid the undesired conversion from
    ANSI codepage to OEM codepage.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fixpack 5.0.5.1.
