RTC 6.0.3 Build Engine Won't Start - AIX

Chris Rowan (1135) | asked Feb 16 '17, 11:17 a.m.

 I recently upgraded from RTC 5 to 6, including the build engine. I used the AIX zip folder to install. I installed in the same directory as the RTC 5 build engine (after moving the RTC 5 contents). I'm using the same JDK and same command line options. 

It seems to me like either I'm missing something or the something fundamental with the install is broken, as it seems that the build engine won't start because it can't find any of its dependent plugins:

... followed by a list of dozens more dependencies.

It looks to me like the appropriate jar files are all there in the buildengine's plugins directory. Could this be a classpath issue of some kind?

It can be a launcher issue. Try to navigate to the location where is, and execute it from there. Comparing the file from both 5.0.2 and 6.0.3, the below line is missing from 6.0.3. I am not sure why the change.


Of course you can also try to add this line back and see if it makes any difference.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I did notice that too and tried a number of things, none of which worked:

 - launch from the .../jazz/buildsystem/buildengine/eclipse directory
 - change to hard code the value of BUILD_ECLIPSE to point to the above directory
 - added a classpath option to the java command line: -cp .../jazz/buildsystem/buildengine/eclipse/plugins

I get the same error regardless.

I think it's time to get in touch with Support.

 I don't know AIX that well, but I have had trouble with the JBE. That was related to the Java version and architecture. I summarized it here:

I noticed that with 6.0.3 the JBE is available in 32 and 64 bit. At least in the plain zip file section you can choose what you download for some of the operating systems. I am not sure if there might be a change for AIX though, as there is only one download. 

Wild guess, but might be worth checking which Java version you run on.

 For what it's worth, as an experiment I downloaded the linux version of the build engine. Installed on a linux server and it started without any issues.

 I downloaded and installed the 6.0.0 AIX build engine, and it is working fine. I believe there's a problem with the 6.0.3 AIX package.
