APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Due to changes in the method in which migration processes file
    paths, paths with a space are not being handled correctly,
    causing migration to fail when locating certain files within
    the directory with a space in its name.
    
    You may see error like the following in the WASPreUpgrade trace
    log file:
    
    com.ibm.wsspi.migration.document.exceptions.NotFoundException:
    bin

    com.ibm.ws.migration.document.BasicDocumentCollection.getChild(B

    ****************************************************************
    While attempting to migrate a profile to V9.0 that has a space
    somewhere in its path, the WASPreUpgrade command fails after
    printing the word bin. In the log file, the error appears as:
    MIGR0302I: The existing files are being saved.
    bin
    com.ibm.wsspi.migration.document.exceptions.NotFoundException:
    bin
    at
    com.ibm.ws.migration.document.BasicDocumentCollection.getChild(B
    asicDocumentCollection.java:578)
    at
    com.ibm.ws.migration.utility.ProfileImpl.initializeOwningValues(
    ProfileImpl.java:319)
    ...
    This occurs because the space(s) in the path are
    percent-encoded by WASPreUpgrade erroneously, causing it to
    look in the wrong locations for the necessary files to
    complete migration.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Migration code was adjusted to preserve the character in the
    paths, so that the correct paths are used to look for the
    files, even when the path includes a space.
    
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.2.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
