Hi,

When I try to install Portal Toolkit 5.0.2.2 in WSAD 5.1.2, it asks for 3 installations, ie, Portal Toolkit, Portal Server Test Environment 5.0, and Portal Server Test Environment 4.2.

I am able to install Portal Toolkit and Portal Server Test Environment 4.2.
But when I install 5.0 Test Env., when the installation progress reaches some 19%, it suddenly fails with the error message somewhat like "Installation failed. See the log for details".

When I checked "C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere Studio\Application Developer\v5.1.2\PortalToolkit\log\TkWpsInst.log", its written as follows:


---- EOF
---- C:\PROGRA~1\IBM\WEBSPH~1\APPLIC~1\V51~1.2\runtimes\portal_v50\log\SystemOut.log
The system cannot find the file specified.
---- EOF
-------- WPS50 Install End. (Error) Tue 06/13/2006 16:26:31.77 --------



Please suggest on what to be done for fixing this. Thanks in advance...

I've never been successfull getting the toolkit to install with WSAD being in such a deep file path. (Maybe it's just me) If it's possible, try installing WSAD right in the base of C:\. i.e. C:\WSAD51 and then re-run the toolkit install. I've had much better luck doing it this way.

Hi Adam,

Months back, I have installed the same in some 2-3 machines to the default path(C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere Studio\Application Developer\v5.1.2) and they were all successful. Even my current s/m is having it installed to this path.

Only for new installtions, there is a problem.

Meanwhile, there was an issue with existing installations.

Whenever you start a 5.0 server (whether it be Websphere 5.0 Test Env. or Portal 5.0 Test Env.), you will get error messages like follows:

java.lang.InvocationTargetException
cannot setup certs for trusted CA's
NoClassDefFoundError: javax/crypto/f

And the server will stop.

Please refer:
http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=0&uid=swg21236118
for details.

As per the steps given in the above link, we applied the fixes and it is working fine for existing machines.


So, my doubt is, is it because of the expiration of Portal Toolkit 5.0.2.2 that the installtion is failing?

Maybe apply the fix to the new machines then rerun the toolkit install. I'm really not sure if it will help but it's worth a try.

I've had so much trouble getting that toolkit installed in the past. Sometimes it seems like I just have to run it 10 times and it'll work on the 11th without changing anything.

Good Luck.

Hi all,

The issue mentioned above got resolved.

Prior to installation of Portal Toolkit and Portal Server Test Env. 5.0, I just changed the system time to a date before May 18, 2006.

Then, the installation went fine. Later, when you change to correct system time, during server startup, some errors will be thrown and the server will stop. That also got resolved by applying fixes got from the link given below.

Hi
I also had similar problem:

---- EOF
---- C:\PROGRA~1\IBM\WEBSPH~1\APPLIC~1\V51~1.2\runtimes\portal_v50\log\SystemOut.log
The system cannot find the file specified.
---- EOF

- But my WSAD is located in C:\WSAD. I think the installation failed because my OS is XP home edition.

Portal Toolkit 5.0.2.3 will not work anymore, because the java certificate expired. There is an update at IBM which fixes this, i think it's version 5.0.2.4. It is a 700 megs download.

I would recomand swithing to Portal 5.1 with Rational Application Developer. You can get them, of course, from IBM.
