APAR status

  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • If the customer source has the customer jar in lib/ext, post
    migration some customer will copy the BPMInternalProvider.jar
    like other customer jar, this will introduce class not found or
    verify error issue.
    
    The apar is used to detect and auto-remove the
    BPMInternalProvider.jar
    

Local fix

  • If the BPMInternalProvider.jar was copied to
    <install_root>/lib/ext as part of migrating from IBM BPM V8.5 or
     earlier to BPM V8.5.x, remove this file before running any IBM
    BPM upgrade commands, like bootsrapProcessServerData or
    BPMUpdateSystemApp, in the new version environment.
    

Problem summary

  • As part of the migration procedure, custom .jar files from the
    <install_root>/lib/ext directoriy in the migration source
    environment are copied to the migration target environment. This
     directory includes the BPMInternalProvider.jar file, which  was
     removed in IBM BPM V8.5. If you copy not only your JAR files,
    but also the BPMInternalProvider.jar file from the previous
    version of IBM BPM, the BPMInternalProvider.jar file might cause
     strange symptoms in the migration target environment, as shown
    in the exceptions.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
