Error CRJAZ1879E when running RTC 6.0.1 upgrade for a WebSphere deployment.

Alan Sampson (93729) | asked Dec 18 '15, 3:12 p.m.
When running the RTC 6.0.1 upgrade script [repotools-jts -migration_jts_updateConfigurationFiles] on a system deployed into WebSphere AS we get the following error:
Merging Tomcat users xml file "c:\IBM\JazzTeamServer5\server/tomcat/conf/tomcat-users.xml"...
CRJAZ1879E The source file "c:\IBM\JazzTeamServer5\server\tomcat\conf\tomcat-users.xml" does not exist. The source file "c:\IBM\JazzTeamServer5\server\tomcat\conf\tomcat-users.xml" cannot be copied to the target file "C:\IBM\JazzTeamServer601\server\liberty\servers\clm\conf\basicUserRegistry.xml".
We specified that we were WebSphere in the interactive upgrade guide and added the updateTomcatFiles=no switch to the repotools-jts command.

Tomcat is not installed on this system so why is the script trying to migrate a Tomcat configuration file during this upgrade?

The documentation for the jts_upgrade script description of the -updateTomcatFiles switch is:
Whether to update the Apache Tomcat configuration files or migrate to WebSphere Liberty. Set this parameter to no if you are using WebSphere® Application Server and set it to yes if you are using Apache Tomcat. Starting in version 6.0.1, the default value has changed to no to automatically migrate Tomcat configuration files to WebSphere Liberty.
There is another switch: -updateAppServerFiles who's description is:
By default, this option is set to yes to update the Tomcat configuration files when migrating to Liberty. Set this parameter to "no" if you are using WebSphere Application Server. If you are using Tomcat, this parameter will be ignored.
As the default value for the -updateAppServerFiles switch is yes the script will attempt to migrate Tomcat configuration files even if none exist.  Setting this switch to no should resolve the issue.
