Known Issue List

  • Customer using the secure sections feature will have problems starting the DTS after applying the patch.  They should contact technical support for a work around prior to attempting to patch their instance. 
  • Customers with certain hotfixed widgets (Calendar, Forms) may run into a startup problem after installing the patch.  To work around this issue customers can either contact Technical Support for assistance, or edit the <InstallDir>/rxconfig/Installer/InstallPackages.xml file and change the FAILED text for the affected widget to "INSTALLED", save the file and restart Percussion. The service will start cleanly.
  • Customers using the MySQL database server as the backing database for the DTS, will lose the MySQL Connector jar if it was previously placed into the <InstallDir>/Deployment/Server/perc-lib directory.  To correct this problem the MySQL Connector for Java may be installed or symlinked into the <InstallDir>/Deployment/Server/lib directory.  Percussion does not include this connector as part of our installation due to license incompatibility issues.
  • Customers Patching the DTS on Windows Servers will need to reinstall the DTS Windows service by using the "<InstallDir>\Deployment\Server\bin\service.bat remove" and  "<InstallDir>\Deployment\Server\bin\service.bat install" commands.  Once the service has been successfully re-installed, the Percussion DTS Windows Service will correctly start. 
  • Customer's running the DTS on a server that also has native APR libraries installed, may run into problems starting the DTS HTTPS connector.   The HTTPS connector may fail to start with an invalid Keystore configuration.  To resolve this issue, remove or comment out the following line in the <InstallDir>/Deployment/Server/conf/server.xml file:

<Listener className="org.apache.catalina.core.AprLifecycleListener" SSLEngine="on"/>

e.g. 

<!-- <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.core.AprLifecycleListener" SSLEngine="on"/> -->.  Restarting the DTS after this change will resolve the APR related errors.
