"com.ibm.bpm.config.util.ConfigException: Failed to import LTPA:" seen when attempting to move a BPM Deployment Environment from one host to another

I saw this exception: -

whilst trying to move an IBM BPM Deployment Environment from one host to another.

The TL;DR; is that I'm running through a BPM 8.5.5 to 8.6 side-by-side migration, aiming to lift and shift the configuration from one box ( running 8.5.5 ) to another box ( running 8.6 ).

Having exported the 8.5.5 Deployment Environment: -

/opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/BPMConfig.sh -export -profile Dmgr01 -de De1 -outputDir  /mnt/BPM855.response

modified the resulting De1.properties file to reflect the new hostname: -

sed -i 's/bpm855/bpm86/g' De1.properties

I then attempted to create a new Deployment Environment on the box with the 8.6 binaries installed: -

/opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/BPMConfig.sh -create -de ~/De1.properties

This failed alas.

However, the message is clear: -

Caused by: java.io.FileNotFoundException: /home/wasadmin/ltpa.jceks (No such file or directory)

When I did the original export, I did get a bunch o' files: -

-rw-r--r-- 1 501 games  7540 Nov 23 11:38 Application-config-bpc.xml
-rw-r--r-- 1 501 games 76228 Nov 23 11:38 De1.properties
-rw-r--r-- 1 501 games  1639 Nov 23 11:38 fileRegistry.xml
-rw-r--r-- 1 501 games  1613 Nov 23 11:38 ltpa.jceks
-rw-r--r-- 1 501 games 13782 Nov 23 11:38 resources-bpc.xml


To validate the hypothesis, I cleaned up ( this on the "new" 8.6 environment ): -

/opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/manageprofiles.sh -deleteAll

rm -Rf /opt/ibm/WebSphereProfiles/

and then copied the ltpa.jceks to the same directory as the De1.properties file: -

cp /mnt/BPM855.response/ltpa.jceks ~

and tried again: -

/opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/BPMConfig.sh -create -de ~/De1.properties

which again failed: -

CWMCB2118E: No source fileRegistry.xml is found in path /home/wasadmin
The 'BPMConfig.sh -create -de /home/wasadmin/De1.properties' command failed. For more information, see the log file /opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/logs/config/BPMConfig_20171123-125129.log.


Again, this makes sense, and that's easy to fix: -

cp /mnt/BPM855.response/fileRegistry.xml .

This time around ….

The 'BPMConfig.sh -create -de /home/wasadmin/De1.properties' command completed successfully.

Yay !

The moral of the story ? Make sure you have ALL the right files in ALL the right places !

For reference, here's the source for the Export process: -
