Error description

  • When you run the  &#65442;&#65506;&#65410;&#65452; &#65427;BPMConfig.sh -delete -profile
    <managed_profile_name> -de <DE_name> -node <node_name> &#65442;&#65506;&#65410;&#65452;
    command and pass a managed node profile name for the profile
    parameter instead of passing the deployment manager profile
    name, you are asked whether you want to delete the node and
    are given the following options:
    
    1. yes
    2. no
    
    If you choose option 1, the  &#65442;&#65506;&#65410;&#65452; &#65427;BPMConfig.sh -delete -profile
    <managed_profile_name> -de <DE_name> -node <node_name> &#65442;&#65506;&#65410;&#65452;
    command fails and you are directed to the log file for more
    information.
    
    In the log file, you see an exception that similar to the
    following exception:

Local fix

  • This behavior was caused by passing the profile name of the
    node to be deleted, rather than the profile name of the deploy
    manager. Changing to pass the deploy manager profile name
    resolved this issue.
