Error description

  • In Business Process Manager v 8.5 , once the customer
    configures a "Advanced-Only Process Server " IBM BPM Deployment
    Environment Type and creates the ND environment by deferring
    the database configuration (by unchecking the create tables
    option in the db configuration panel) , the customer is
    directed to run the steps outlined in the "Deferred
    Configuration" panel :
    
    Admin console > Servers > Deployment Environments > [DE_Name ]
    > Deferred Configuration [seen under "Additional Properties"
    section in this panel]
    
    For an Advanced-Only Process Server BPM Deployment Environment
    the "Deferrred Configuration" panel suggests the customer to
    run the "bootstrapProcessServerData" script as shown below :
    
    "Run the bootstrapProcessServerData utility from the command
    line. The utility is found in the Deployment manager profile
    directory : BPM_Installation_root/profiles/Dmgr_name/bin. More
    information, please visit IBM Business Process Manager
    Information Center. "
    
    
    And if the customer runs the bootstrapProcessServerData script
    as per the suggestion, the customer will see the following err
    :
    
    
    
    -----------
    
    
    WASX7357I: By request, this scripting client is not connected
    to any
    server process. Certain configuration and application
    operations will
    be available in local mode.
    java.lang.NullPointerException
            at
    com.ibm.bpm.bootstrap.BootstrapProcessServerDataHelper.
    determineClusterMember(BootstrapProcessServerDataHelper.java:828
    )
            at
    com.ibm.bpm.bootstrap.BootstrapProcessServerDataHelper.init
    (BootstrapProcessServerDataHelper.java:135)
            at
    com.ibm.bpm.bootstrap.BootstrapProcessServerDataHelper.
    bootstrapData(BootstrapProcessServerDataHelper.java:213)
            at com.ibm.bpm.bootstrap.BootstrapHelper.execute
    
    
    
    -------
    

Local fix

  • -----
    For a "Advanced-only Process Server" BPM Development
    environment the user need not run the
    bootstrapProcessServerData script. The user can skip the
    bootstrapProcessServerData script and execute the rest of steps
    suggested in the Admin console > Servers > Deployment
    Environments > [DE_Name ]> Deferred Configuration  panel.

    ****************************************************************
    You are asked to run the bootstrapProcessServerData utility
    from the command line after you create an Advanced-Only
    Process Server deployment environment and database
    configuration is delayed; however, the
    bootstrapProcessServerData utility is not appropriate for the
    Advanced-Only Process Server deployment environment to run
    and, therefore, you will get the following error:
    WASX7357I: By request, this scripting client is not connected
    to any server process. Certain configuration and application
    operations will be available in local mode.
