Error description

  • During the upgrade process, Installation Manager fails with
    error CRIMA1217E indicating that a problem happened in the
    post-install.xml script during the uninstall phase of
    Worklight V6.0.
    The corresponding worklight-uninstall.log file in the
    Installation Manager logs directory reveals that a wrong
    Deployment Manager (Dmgr02) was attempted to be started instead
    of the expected one (Dmgr01).
    
    Excerpt of the trace

Local fix

  • Start the deployment manager of the cell where Application
    Center was deployed before proceeding to the upgrade with
    Installation Manager.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * Users who installed WebSphere Application Server Network     *
    * Deployment (WAS ND) with several Deployment Managers on the  *
    * same machines and who are trying to upgrade IBM Application  *
    * Center using Installation Manager.                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When IBM Application Center V6.0.x is deployed on a WAS ND   *
    * configuration managed by a Deployment Manager that is not    *
    * the default then the upgrade may fail if this Deployment     *
    * Manager is not started during the upgrade process. The code  *
    * of the upgrade process only handles the default WAS ND       *
    * Deployment Manager.                                          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * -                                                            *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • A validation was added to the code to select and start the
    correct WAS ND Deployment Manager before performing the upgrade.
