Installation Notes & Common Issues

Database Updates

Beginning with Patch 5315_20191221 the update engine now supports database schema updates as part of the update process.  As a result the patch relies on the installer database configuration file to successfully run.  In environments where the database setup has changed, or a server / RDBMS migration has occurred, it is possible that the installation database configuration file may be out of date which would cause the patch to fail.  To avoid this problem, prior to installing the Patch verify that the contents of the <InstallDir>/rxconfig/Installer/ file are correct.  Updating this file is covered in the Appendix A section of the Migrating Percussion Environments help page

Common Issues / Workarounds

Updates can occasionally Fail to apply for a variety of reasons.  To help streamline troubleshooting, we have created a new Common Issues / Workarounds page to collect the steps to correct these issues if you run into them when patching.  As always if you run into a problem applying a patch, please contact the Technical Support team at, and they will be happy to assist.

Issues addressed in this patch:

[CMS-5569] DTS updates not applied in 5315_20190220_2 Patch Update

An issue was corrected where the 5315_20190220_2 patch update did not apply the DTS updates included with the patch, even when there was a DTS installation present.  This problem has been corrected in this patch and the DTS files will be updated when the patch is installed. 

[CMS-2897] - CM1 Users can be created and log into CM1 with NO PASSWORD

An issue was corrected where database user accounts could be created with no password.  After this update, passwordless users are not allowed. 

[CMS-3114] - In Users tab/ view user mode clicking save button results in Password blank alert

An issue was corrected where saving a user when not editing username and password caused a "Password must be the same" validation error to be displayed in the UI. This behavior was most prevalent when using the Chrome web browser. 

[CMS-5533] - Patch uninstall removes perc-tomcat-common-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar DTS and fails to start

An issue was discovered where if the patch was installed, uninstalled, and then re-installed. The perc-tomcat-common-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar would fail to be installed into the DTS lib directory.  This problem has been corrected by this patch. 

Known Issue List

  • CMS-5294 - The Ignore Unmodified Assets publishing feature does not work correctly on systems with 2000 or more Assets.  We recommend that this option be unchecked in your publishing configuration to avoid publishing failures. 
  • CMS-3614 - After applying the patch end users may need to clear their browser cache in the CM1 user interface in order to see the new changes to the Rich text Editor and plugins.
  • CMS-3257 - 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.
  • CMS-3490 - 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 start.
