2457379 - 3rd party portal application is deployed with "warning" and shows "implicit stopped (dependency failed)" state


After deploying and application with a certain tool (eg. SUM, NWDS, Telnet etc...) following similar warning appears in deploy.trace file (in this case a jkti application is affected):

File:<LocalDrive>\<Patth>\com~jkti~ume~logon~uiEAR.ear Name:com~jkti~ume~logon~uiEAR Location:Deployment Manager Version:42 Deploy status:Warning Version:NEW
Description: 1. Warning occurred on server <XXXXXXX> during deploy of : References Test: There are no matching deploy time references (described in META-INF/SAP_MANIFEST.MF) for the following runtime references [] (described in the META-INF/application-j2ee-engine.xml), file: com~jkti~ume~logon~uiEAR.ear, severity: warning
CSN component of deployment item is not available 2. Exception has been returned while the [] was starting. Warning/Exception :[][ASJ.dpl_ds.006153 Error occurred while starting application []: It is not started successfully on server nodes [<XXXXXXX>]. In order to bring the server in consistent state stop operation will be performed.

Application shows "Implicit stopped (dependency failed)" state:


When trying to start this affected application (via NWA or Telnet) following exception is logged:

Error occurred on server <XXXXXXX> during startApp of : Clusterwide exception: [server ID <XXXXXXX> Application cannot be started. Reason: it has hard reference to application, which is not active on the server because  application is not deployed. Probably refering application declares runtime but no deploy-time dependency to the referred application which is wrong. Deploy the component or contact owners of application to check their references...

KBA 2170767 describes similar case however in current case (3rd party apps) it is not applicable.
