Error description

  • SERVER_MIGRATION_FAILURE error message in seen in the
    SystemOut.log file for every instance during an instance
    migration with a policy file.
    
    Upon further review of the instance we can see that all instance
    were migrated successfully and no tokens needed actions so the
    error can be thrown when there is no issue.
    
    Additionally the error message is very vague regard why it is
    thrown. Normally it means that the instance was successfully
    migrated but a failure occurred while processing token move or
    delete operations. You would need to look for FFDCs or previous
    errors to know the cause.
    The error could be improved to contain this info.
    

Local fix

  • Enabling the alwaysSaveSearchableVariables configuration should
    avoid the error incorrectly being printed but will add some
    additional overhead.
    
    This configuration change would need to be to a 100custom.xml
    file change:
      <server>
         <instance-migration merge="mergeChildren">
             <always-save-searchable-variables
             merge="replace">true</always-save-searchable-variables>
          </instance-migration>
      </server>
    

Problem summary

  • ERROR DESCRIPTION -
