Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Remote Migration                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: "6 was not expected" message when       *
    *                      running Remote Migration                *
    *                      WASPreUpgrade.bat when JAVA_HOME        *
    *                      contains space character.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    This problem can occur when all of the following are true:
    * A remote migration jar is created and Java is not included
    in the jar.
    * The jar is shipped to a Windows system
    * JAVA_HOME is set to an otherwise valid Java path that
    contains a space character
    When WASPreUpgrade.bat is run, it will emit a message like "6
    was not expected at this time." and migration will not run.
    This is because the JAVA_HOME value gets processed by
    WASPreUpgrade and various variables are set. These variables
    do not handle the space correctly and various problems occur,
    with the first problem to derail the script causing the
    cryptic message above.
