IBM BPM, an Upgrade and a missing Stored Procedure

One of my colleagues saw an interesting issue with an IBM BPM upgrade today, switching from 8.5.6 to 8.5.7.

He's using BPM Standard, but that's not terribly relevant.

This is what he saw in the logs, after running the DBUpgrade.sh script: -

Whilst there were a few non-severe DB-related exceptions: -

etc., there was a more serious exception: -

It took a while, but, after some digging around, it looks like the missing Stored Procedure ( LSW_ERASE_TEMP_GROUPS ) wasn't ever created when the environment was first built.

I had him re-run the initial build script: -

db2 connect to BPMDB
db2 -tdGO -vf /opt/IBM/BPM/v8.5/profiles/DmgrProfile/dbscripts/PCCell1.De1/DB2/BPMDB/createProcedure_Standard.sq
db2 terminate

and then re-run the DBUpgrade.sh script.

This time around … all went well.

So, the moral of the story, always read the logs, and dig to see what's actually going on - this time, we had a script that was creating a Stored Procedure ( CREATE PROCEDURE db2inst1.LSW_HOUSE_KEEPING ), that was calling another Stored Procedure ( DB2INST1.LSW_ERASE_TEMP_GROUPS ) … that didn't exist :-(
