WebAS - invalid property value

Former Member

I started to apply SP11 to WebAS 6.4 SP9 and now having problems starting the dispatcher-process. The developer-trace shows two errors:

      • error => Invalid property value [box.number/J2EJC00MC00009304] [jstartxx.c 808]

      • error => Invalid property value [] [jstartxx.c 808]

I can't figure out why these values are wrong. What are the right values and where to set them?

Looks like, the properties are not a problem at all. The dispatcher didn't start because of wrong settings of heap sizes.

I found the same problem.

When upgrading from WebAS 6.40 SP09 => SP11 (or SP12) the update process stops before "Deploy online" because the J2EE engine came not up.

This is because a wrong jvm parameter in the dispatchers default configuration in WebAS 6.40 SP9:

Xms170m instead <b>-</b>Xms170m.

To fix the problem it seem to be the best choise to use the configtool BEFORE starting the upgrade to SP11 or 12.

Move to the instance_IDxxx\dispatcher_IDxxx general tab and correct the wrong jvm parameter Xms170m to -Xms170m.

Thats all.
