    When running the command AdminTask.renameCell('[-newCellName
    newCellName -regenCerts false -changeSetupCmdBat true]')
    The command fails, but only on a Windows platform.
    We also see this same failure when doing a migration to versions
    like from 9.0.5.1 to 9.0.5.4
    

Problem conclusion

  • To prevent the ConfigDataNotFoundException, corrected the
    AdminTask.renameCell() command implementation.
    
    Please note that this fix will work only when installed along
    with the fix for APAR PH29876.
    
    The fixes for both APAR are targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    9.0.5.6.
