This section contains a list of known issues in the Configurator tool for Communications Express.
The Communications Express Configurator does not allow you to undeploy, remove files at the time of configuration, and remove files created during runtime.
To unconfigure Communications Express:
Remove the Communications Express package. For example on Solaris type
Remove the deploy directories
Remove the WEBAPP entry from Web Server or Application Server server.xml file.
Communications Express allows configuration to be executed only interactively, and does not allow silent configuration. When you try to configure in a silent mode, the following error is displayed, “The Directory name cannot be left blank. This is a mandatory field. Please enter again.”
Communications Express Configurator fails to complete the configuration process if your system is not configured for host name aliases.
Ensure that you have configured one or more host name aliases for your system.
To configure one or more host name aliases on UNIX systems:
Provide the configuration for the hosts in /etc/nsswitch.conf file:
hosts: files dns nis
This configuration indicates to the name service the lookup order it should use to resolve host names and host aliases. The name service lookup order is: files, dns, and nis.
Ensure that the /etc/hosts file contains two or more host names defined against your machine’s IP address.
For example, if your system IP address is 126.96.36.199, then in /etc/hosts file, you can configure the IP address as:
188.8.131.52 budgie.siroe.varrius.com budgie
184.108.40.206 budgie.siroe.varrius.com budgie loghost
Example of an incorrect IP address:
The field names and browser buttons are truncated or not visible when the configuration wizard is invoked in a language other than English.
Resize the configuration panels to view its contents properly.
The Configurator tool for Communications Express shows the component size as 0 bytes while displaying the Mail and Calendar components for Communications Express.
In an installation scenario where the Communications Express and Access Manager are installed and configured on separate nodes, the Web Server installed on the node containing the Communications Express throws a Java exception on restart. This is due to the incorrect settings in the Web Server's classpath (on the node where Communications Express is installed).
Edit the web_svr_base/config/server.xml file on the Web Server instance of the node where Communications Express is installed, and ensure that the following entries are available in the Web Server's classpath:
opt/SUNWam/lib:/opt/SUNWam/locale:/etc/opt/SUNWam/config: /opt/SUNWam/lib/am_sdk.jar:/opt/SUNWam/lib/am_services.jar: /opt/SUNWam/lib/am_logging.jar
The Communications Express configurator creates a self referencing symbolic link on Linux under the /var/opt/sun/uwc/staging directory.
Remove all self referencing symbolic links from the /var/opt/sun/uwc/staging directory and redeploy UWC.
The Communications Express configurator does not validate the Application Server port during configuration and thus the configuration hangs if a wrong Application Server port number is specified.
The configuration of Communications Express hangs when the Web Server is running. This is due to an UnsatisfiedLinkError error.
Gracefully shutdown the Web Server by executing the command /web_svr_base/web_svr_domain_name/stop. This will allow the Communications Express configuration to proceed.
