Environment

Release : 15.9+

Resolution

  • This error message is thrown by the esapi library, and is just a benign warning
  • The file loading initially fails via file I/O, then the file is loaded via classpath successfully
  • This is the expected behavior and Broadcom Support recommends to ignore this warning 
  • No further action is needed and the system is healthy
