Pinned topic Portal fails on initial invocation

‏2011-09-23T14:08:31Z |
Hi

we installed the v8.0 Beta VMware image according to the instructions. The installation verification succeds, the administrative console works, but requests to the portal throw

Error 500: javax.servlet.ServletException: Filter State Cleanup: Could not find required filter class - com.ibm.wps.state.filter.StateCleanup.class

I found some articles, but they all refer to V7.0 or older. What could have been gone wrong?

    It sounds like either your WAS or Portal directories might not have unzipped properly. In other words, if you look at:

    /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer
    or
    /opt/IBM/WebSphere/PortalServer

    Its possible that one of those directories is empty or missing some required files.
    The fix is to:
    1. stop the VM
    2. unzip the appropriate Portal or WAS zip file again
    3. restart the VM
    Hopefully that helps
