Error description

  • When you run the setupSearchIndex tool it fails with an error
    like the one below:
    Cause:
    An error occurred while attempting to run task. The exception
    error was: An IO exception was caught. The error was:
    /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/demo/properties/soap.clien
    t.props (No such file or directory).
    ****************************************************************
    **
    ****************************************************************
    **
    
    Program exiting with exit code: 3.
    Search index setup not successful. An unrecoverable error has
    occurred. Check the log file for more information.
    
    If your WebSphere Application Server (WAS) profile path is in a
    location other than <WAS>/profiles/<WC_instanceName> then you
    note that, in the error message, the path to the profile is
    incorrect.  The utility is searching for soap.client.props in
    the wrong path.
