Interesting - java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com.ibm.xylem.utils.ErrorHandlerProvider

During an installation of IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.5 onto Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 ( which, I know, is an unsupported combination ), I had an interesting experience.

This was the installation command: -

/opt/ibm/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl -input /mnt/ResponseFiles/installBPM855.rsp -acceptLicense

and this was the result: -

Interestingly, IBM Installation Manager reckoned that things were installed: -

and yet: -

/opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/versionInfo.sh 

returned: -

I uninstalled WAS and BPM: -

/opt/ibm/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl uninstallAll

Uninstalled com.ibm.bpm.ADV.v85_8.5.5000.20140604_1130 from the /opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer directory.
Uninstalled com.ibm.websphere.ND.v85_8.5.5002.20140408_1947 from the /opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer directory.

cleared down the /opt/ibm/WebSphere directory: -

rm -Rf /opt/ibm/WebSphere

and tried again: -

/opt/ibm/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl -input /mnt/ResponseFiles/installBPM855.rsp -acceptLicense

Which is weird :-(

So that may be tomorrow's challenge - either to persist, or to switch to a supported version of RHEL.

What fun !

*UPDATE* Solved it !

Having previously used IBM Installation Manager 1.7.2 ( which comes with BPM 8.5.5 which shipped in mid-2014 ), I switched up to IBM Installation Manager 1.8.6.1.

Having done this, the installation completed successfully: -

/opt/ibm/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl -input /mnt/ResponseFiles/installBPM855.rsp -acceptLicense

Installed com.ibm.bpm.ADV.v85_8.5.5000.20140604_1130 to the /opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer directory.
Installed com.ibm.websphere.ND.v85_8.5.5002.20140408_1947 to the /opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer directory.

Note the warning about an unsupported operating system - this comes from WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5.2, which again ships with BPM 8.5.5.

Similarly, versionInfo.sh worked: -
