Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem

After upgrading to 8001, the 'enable-new-8001-features' script fails.

Symptom

The following error is present in the SystemOut.log:
AbstractImpor E SER3008E: An error occurred importing from file:
/opt/was_wps8/profiles/<somename>/ConfigEngine/config/work/sr_import/554ee7f5/423dc4e4/c282e6f1/d72249da/9425eecc/718ff97d/826d7e0e.node.

at com.ibm.icm.jcr.command.AbstractImportNodeCommand.importNodeTree(Abstrac tImportNodeCommand.java:474)


Cause

This issue can occur if IBM Installation Manager installs the 8001 binaries first, then the user executes the CONFIG-WP-PTF-CF script from it manually afterwards. By doing it this way, ConfigEngine's registry is not properly updated and this results in certain WCM scripts not being executed. It ultimately leads to the failure in the 'enable-new-8001-features' script.

Diagnosing the problem

The following error will be present in the SystemOut.log:
AbstractImpor E SER3008E: An error occurred importing from file:
/opt/was_wps8/profiles/<somename>/ConfigEngine/config/work/sr_import/554ee7f5/423dc4e4/c282e6f1/d72249da/9425eecc/718ff97d/826d7e0e.node.

at com.ibm.icm.jcr.command.AbstractImportNodeCommand.importNodeTree(Abstrac tImportNodeCommand.java:474)

Resolving the problem

To fix the problem, ConfigEngine's registry must be rebuilt, then CONFIG-WP-PTF-CF must be re-executed. Follow these steps:

1. ./ConfigEngine.sh -uninstall -offeringList PortalServer -unregisterOnly

2. ./ConfigEngine.sh -install -offeringRoot <PortalServer root> -installPath <PortalServer root> expandBinaries false

e.g. ./ConfigEngine.sh -install -offeringRoot /opt/IBM/WebSphere/PortalServer -installPath /opt/IBM WebSphere/PortalServer -expandBinaries false

3. Re-execute CONFIG-WP-PTF-CF
