Error description

  • The following error occurs when migrating a federated node into
    a WebSphere traditional base version 9 install.
    
    com.ibm.websphe
    re.models.config.customprocessexec.NamedProcessDef
    MIGR0272E:
    The migration function cannot complete the command.
    Caused by: j
    ava.lang.ClassNotFoundException:
    com.ibm.websphere.models.config
    .customprocessexec.NamedProcessDef cannot be found by
    com.ibm.ws.migration_9.1.0
    

Local fix

  • As a workaround, the customer can migrate the profile into a
    profile in an ND install instead of a base install.

    The following error occurs when migrating a federated node into
    a WebSphere traditional base version 9 install.
    com.ibm.websphe
    re.models.config.customprocessexec.NamedProcessDef
    MIGR0272E:
    The migration function cannot complete the command.
    Caused by: j
    ava.lang.ClassNotFoundException:
    com.ibm.websphere.models.config
    .customprocessexec.NamedProcessDef cannot be found by
    com.ibm.ws.migration_9.1.0
    This occurs because the profile is part of an ND cell, but is
    created in a WAS Base install. Migration is attempting to load
    some classes that are only present and used by WAS ND (in this
    case, WVE classes.) Since the .jar for these classes is not
    present, the error is thrown.
    The code this occurs in is only incidentally loading these
    classes, and does not actually depend on their existence to
    work.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Migration was adjusted to expect the NoClassDefFoundError in
    the code causing it and handle it appropriately, allowing the
    migration process to continue.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    9.0.5.6. For more information, see 'Recommended Updates for
    WebSphere Application Server':
