FileNet P8 connection validation fails with error during IBM Content Collector v3.0 initial configuration

Technote (troubleshooting)


Incorrect or old URL is stored in IBMAFUROOT\\Configuration\\initialConfig\\data\\AfuInitialConfigOutput.xml


This is because of a previous incorrect URL being saved.

Even though you change the URL to correct one http://hostname/wsi/FNCEWS40MTOM/ at IBM Content Collector setup tools -> P8 Repository Configuration, the old URL is still stored in IBMAFUROOT\\Configuration\\initialConfig\\data\\AfuInitialConfigOutput.xml and that old URL is being used.


Windows 2008

Diagnosing the problem

Check the files IBMAFUROOT\\Configuration\\initialConfig\\data\\AfuInitialConfigOutput.xml where the incorrect URL can be seen.

Resolving the problem

  • Delete IBMAFUROOT\\Configuration\\initialConfig\\data\\AfuInitialConfigOutput.xml
  • Run initial configuration or the P8 Repository Configuration setup tool again.
