Issue
Some tips/tricks for the new release of Portal 6.2.

Resolution
A couple of notes on installing the webMethods Portal 6.2:

  • Uninstallation. I uninstalled Portal 6.1.5 beforehand. I suggest you do the same if you don’t need your existing Portal installation, otherwise you will have to follow the upgrade procedure. During uninstallation, make sure you also select “webMethods Common UI Framework” if it’s in the list or you will encounter severe problems with the Portal Configurator and you will have to start over.

  • Installation. You need the new webMethods Installer (v6.2), which is now available on Advantage (follow the links for the regular 6.1 installer, you will end up with the 6.2 installer).

  • Important Installation Notes (internal Tracking number 1-UFP47). When installing the webMethods Portal, selecting “webMethods Portal” from “Runtime Environments” in the webMethods Installer (6.2) seems to select the wrong components for the Portal installation. A mix of 6.1.5 and 6.2 components are selected (I had to uninstall/reinstall because of this).

Here is a list of components which I checked/unchecked (my Portal installation seems to work fine now):

  • In the “webMethods Common UI Framework” section, the entry “Database Scripts 6.2.0” should be selected, but the entry “Database Scripts 6.1.5” is selected by default. It seems to switch back to 6.1.5 after checking on/off anything under “webMethods Portal” so be very careful. If you have the 6.1.5 scripts, you will not be able to install the Portal.
  • Under the webMethods Portal entry, the following entries should not be selected:
  • Program Files SP1 (all subcomponents) []Embedded Servers (all subcomponents) []Servers (all subcomponents) Tools, Portal Server Configurator 6.1.5
  • If you use the Broker for messaging (during configuration), make sure you check out the ReadMe beforehand for last-minute information. Note that it’s not required.

Hi ,

First go to your oracle enterprise manager (10g)login with your database user, and delete all the tables, indexes, views, synonyms and sequences.

then create the two table spaces “WEBMDATA” and “WEBMINDX” in your database user and again run your database configurator it will work fine.
and again if you will get errors the please let me know.

Thanks
Vikash

Hi Vikashs,

I have deleted tables, indexes, views, synonyms and sequences and created the 2 table space as you sugested.
