IBM announced new updates of Sametime because of SSLv3 vulnerability (PODDLE) for all Sametime comoponents on february this year
After two month of upgrading today i got this strange error if i try to upgrade the Sametime System Console.
„A problem occurred during the execution of the ….WebSphere\STSCCell\build_meeting.xml file“
Analyzing the xml file (build_meeting.xml) there was a problem starting the application server STConsoleServer within the upgrade phase.
So i checked if there are problems with the registered os services to start – but this was not the problem (upgrade also failed). Looking inside the application server configuration i found out that the application server was set to have dependencies with its nodeagent (monitoring policy = RUNNING).
So therefore the upgrade fails because of waiting for the nodeagent to start. You need – only for the upgrade process – to set the setting from RUNNING to STOPPED.
There is an IBM technote with a little more information about this setting.
