RTC 4.0.3 Tomcat and Derby - why am I getting an error connecting to warehouse DB?


Donald Poulin (2249110107) | asked Sep 13 '13, 11:13 a.m.
I keep seeing the following error in the ccm.log

2013-09-07 00:02:45,885 [ccm: AsynchronousTaskRunner-3 @@ 00:02] ERROR com.ibm.team.datawarehouse                          - CRJAZ0502I The connection could not be created (vendor="derby_net", location="c:/PROGRA~1/IBM/JazzTeamServer/server/conf/jts/derby/warehouseDB").

Tomcat has been set up to run as a service and after reviewing all the changes everything looks ok. The jts_etl.log looks fine but the ccm_etl.log has no entries.


Any ideas?

Hi Donald,

Derby DB has a relative path in the teamserver.properties by default. If you run Tomcat as a service, you need to provide an absolute path.

FYI: Derby is not meant to be used as a production DB. You should consider using DB2 instead.
