CA Identity Manager

Issue/Introduction

We are upgrading CA Identity manager from 14.2 to 14.3.

The Identity manager installation wizard completed successfully but, when we start the Identity manager, it still shows CA Identity Manager 14.2 in SystemOut.logs

Inspecting caiamsuite.log, the following error is observed

     [exec] ca-stylesInstall: Deploying and Installing ca-styles in a cluster
     [exec] WASX7017E: Exception received while running file "D:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer/profiles/Dmgr01/bin/iam_im_ca-stylesInstall.jacl"; exception information: com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.AdminException
     [exec] javax.management.MBeanException
     [exec] com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.AdminException
     [exec] com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.AdminException: ADMA0043E: C:\Users\adminuser\AppData\Local\Temp\app2827344615513556828.ear does not exist for installation.
     [exec] 

Cause

TEMP folder settings on the overall server can cause such errors

Environment

Release : 14.x

Component : IdentityMinder(Identity Manager)
Application Server: WebSphere 8.5.5.17

Resolution
