2524660 - BIP Add-on or patch Installation fails as some services run with errors.


  • Add-on installer [or repair of any BI install] appears to finish but fails to complete or states 'has encountered errors during the install process'
  • Update installer failure [Support package or Patch]:  After patching, the installer appears to finish but multiple services fail to start of run with errors.
  • In case of Add-on install failure [Lumira or Design Studio or Analysis Office add-on for BIP] : After installing , the install appears to be successful but some menu items are missing or services like the Adaptive Processing Server (APS) run with errors.
  • For example, after installing Design Studio 1.6 SP4, in the Central Management Console (CMC), the APS  is running with errors due to the Analysis Application service failure.
  • Although the installer appears to succeed, errors can be seen while viewing or refreshing the updated or add-on content.
  • The installer script was not able to connect to the CMS & all the retries failed.

    Sleeping for 5 second(s)...
    ERROR: Could not reach CMS '<HOST>:6400'. Specify the correct host and port and check for network issues. (FWM 20030)
  • Upon checking the <installdir>/setup/packagestemp folder, there are many *.dfo.xml files (system objects) which were not uploaded or deployed by the installer (note that having a small number of dfo's left for a BI patch/SP update is normal)
