Error description

  • When you create a managed profile by using the BPMConfig
    command and specify a ports file for the node agent by using
    the "bpm.de.node.#.profileOptions=-portsFile portdef.props"
    property setting in the configuration properties file, the
    ports file is ignored and the node agent is created with the
    WebSphere port assignments.

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that ensure the
    BPMConfig command passes the '-portsFile' option (if
    specified) in bpm.de.node.#.profileOptions to the node agent
    creation.

    IS A WORKAROUND AVAILABLE? (Y/N)
    Yes. Complete the following steps:
     1.Create the deployment manager profile by using any of the
    supported configuration paths. For more information, see
     ¢â‚¬ “Configuring profiles and creating a network deployment
    environment ¢â‚¬  ½
    (http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/dmndhelp/v8r5m0/index.jsp?top
    ic=/com.ibm.wbpm.imuc.ebpmps.doc/topics/cfg_nd_prof_sol.html).
     2.Start the deployment manager.
     3.Run "manageprofiles -create -templatePath BPM/BpmNode
    -portsFile portdef.props ¢â‚¬ ¦" (where the ellipsis ( ¢â‚¬ ¦) s
    the other parameters you have in your scenario), following
    this guidance:
    Do not set the -federateLater option.
    Set the -nodeName parameter to bpm.de.node.#.name from the
    configuration properties file.
    Do not set the "-cellName" parameter. It will be retrieved
    from the deployment manager.
    Set the -dmgrHost, -dmgrPort, -dmgrAdminUserName, and
    -dmgrAdminPassword parameters appropriately for the connection
    to the running deployment manager.
    
     4.Run BPMConfig or the administrative console Deployment
    Environment wizard to create the deployment environment.
