Error description

  • When you install an IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) interim
    fix that requires the configuration data in the profile to be
    updated, you must run the BPMConfig -upgrade command manually as
     described in ?
    Profile update instructions for IBM Business Process Manager
    (BPM) 8.5.x interim fixes? (
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21637449).
    
    Also, when you install an IBM BPM interim fix that requires the
    IBM BPM toolkits to be updated, you must run the
    BPMUpdateSystemApp command manually as described in
    ?BPMUpdateSystemApp command?
    (http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSFTN5_8.5.0/com.ibm
    .wbpm.ref.doc/topics/rref_bpmupdatesystemapp.html). These manual
    steps should be automated like they are for IBM BPM refresh
    packs and fix packs.

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • Upgrading the IBM BPM profile for interim fixes was not
    automated because it would have been triggered the first time
    the server starts for each interim fix that affects the
    configuration. As a result, starting the server for the first
    time after installing interim fixes would have taken a long
    time.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that ensures the IBM BPM
     profile is upgraded only once, no matter how many interim fixes
     have been installed, which allows upgrading the IBM BPM profile
     for interim fixes to be automated as part of the first time the
     server starts like it is for IBM BPM refresh packs and fix
    packs.
    
    This fix also automatically updates the IBM BPM toolkits the
    first time the deployment manager (IBM BPM Standard and IBM BPM
    Advanced) or the stand-alone server (IBM BPM Express) starts.
    
    Important: Interim fix JR53069 only enables upgrade automation.
    When fixes require that profiles or toolkits be upgraded, those
    fixes must include an action to trigger the automated upgrade.
    Otherwise, the upgrade remains manual.
    
    On Fix Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral), search
    for JR53069:
    
     1. Select IBM Business Process Manager with your edition from
    the product selector, the installed version to the fix pack
    level, and your platform, and then click Continue.
      2. Select APAR or SPR, enter JR53069, and click Continue.
    
    When you download fix packages, ensure that you also download
    the readme file for each fix. Review each readme file for
    additional installation instructions and information about the
    fix.
