Error description

  • The following technote describes a problem where lock timeouts
    can occur when sending tracking definitions or transferring
    data to the Performance Data Warehouse database:
    
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21613755
    
    The solution described in the technote entails a set of
    configuration changes that must be applied to these WebSphere
    Application Server resources (created when a Business Process
    Manager profile is created):
    
    Activation specifications:
    - DataDefLoaderActivationSpec
    - RepresentationManagerActivationSpec
    
    Bus destinations:
    - DataDefLoaderQueueDestination....
    - RepresentationManagerQueueDestination...
    
    The technote also states that "These configuration changes are
    made, by default, in IBM Business Process Manager Version
    8.0.1."  When an existing Business Profile Manager profile is
    upgraded as part of  upgrading Business Process Manager from
    Version 8.0 to Version 8.0.1  (via Business Process Manager
    V8.0 Refresh Pack 1) or Version 8.0.1.1 (via Business Process
    Manager V8.0.1 Fix Pack 1), however, the configuration
    changes are not applied.

    The profile upgrade scripts for Business Process Manager
    Version 8.0.1 do not contain code to automatically apply the
    configuration changes described in the technote
    (http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?
    uid=swg21613755) to an existing profile.
    This issue will be resolved in a future maintenance release of
    Business Process Manager Version 8.0.1.
