M6 WAS DB2: jazz/setup page gives : A problem occurred whi


Tom Frauenhofer (1.3k48335) | asked Apr 08 '08, 4:42 p.m.
RHEL5, WAS 6.1.0.13, DB2, fresh install of M6.
Using Bluepages LDAP

Tomcat comes up just fine, and the jazz/setup webpage reports that the
DB connection is OK.

If I shutdown Tomcat and start WAS instead, the jazz/setup webpage (Fast
Path) displays a message "A problem occurred while loading User Registry
settings." and the 'next' button is grayed out.

If I use the "Custom Setup" link instead, it shows
"Loading Database Connection settings..."

Tried M5a .. the jazz/setup dialog works fine for both Tomcat and WAS.

Any help appreciated

Yes, I've now reverted back to only one new Custom Property and the DB
connection remains in the green !

But big thanks for pointing out the extra provisioning setup necessary
in WAS.

I'm afraid I don't know what the provisioning server is for :-).

I only downloaded it because the Wiki page that Pravesh mentioned
referred to it. I'm basically just trying to walk through the the new
jazz/setup dialog. I have followed the Wiki instructions and my original
DB connection problem has been resolved.

On the next page of the "Custom Setup" I'm now seeing ..

"Loading Email Notification settings..."

I'll post a new message for that

Thanks for getting back

David,

The only available Server SDK in M6 is now the provisioning one. (Now
just called the JazzTeamServer-<tag>.zip)

To install into WAS you must make sure that a system property is
configured to point to the profile.ini found in the sdk. The profile.ini
file itself must be modified such that it has an absolute path to the
"jazz/server/update-site" directory found in the sdk. The "/ws" is just
an example of where the profile.ini file had been copied to.

For example.

1) Unzip the Server SDK into a directory called /M6
2) Modify the "url" property value in profile.ini to

file:/M6/jazz/server/update-site

3) Add a custom property called
"com.ibm.team.repository.provision.profile" to the WAS jvm setup that
contains this value

/M6/jazz/server/profile.ini

You will need to make sure a com.ibm.team.server.configURL system
property is set to point to your required teamserver.properties, however
this is something that you should already have in place, perhaps set as
a generic jvm property in the WAS configuration.

If you want to have custom log4j properties then you can also add the
log4j.configuration system property.

Neither the com.ibm.team.server.configURL or log4j.configuration are
required by the provisioning code.

I grabbed the JazzProvisioningServer package (for M5a, M6 didn't seem
to have one) and noticed that its profile.ini is the same as that
provided by the M6 package (located in the jazz/server directory).

In any case, I setup my custom properties to be identical to those
shown on that Wiki page. That "/ws" syntax is new to me but I copied
it verbatim anyway.


Didn't seem to fix the problem, I'm afraid.


I assume it's correct to remove the log4j and configURL Generic JVM
properties and use the Custom Properties shown in the Wiki page ?

Why does the first Custom Property shown start with "/ws/" and the
other two use "file:/ws/" ?

Cheers

The WAS setup documentation is wrong for M6. I had the same issue.
You must add a custom property called
"com.ibm.team.repository.provision.profile" for M6 running
under WAS. See Wiki page below.
https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/JazzProvisionerSetupInWAS

Additionally I had to add custom properties for
com.ibm.team.server.configURL and log4j.configuration. These two
properties used to be specified as Generic JVM arguements.

OK .. a more careful reading of your note and that Wiki page would have
helped :-)

When I include my actual absolute jazz/server path in the property
values (duh) and edit the profile.ini as instructed, the problem goes away

Thank you :-)
