Error description

  • The Windows start menu entry ?IBM > Business Process Manager

    Profiles ->  ProfileName ->
    - open properties  for "Start the deployment Manager " context
    menu
    
    Change the target value
    from
    C:\IBM\BPM_8013\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\Dmgtestr01\bin\star
    tServer.bat ${serverName}
    TO
    C:\IBM\BPM_8013\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\Dmgtestr01\bin\star
    tServer.bat dmgr
