Issue/Introduction

Upgradation of WAAE has been failed from 11.3.5 to 11.3.6 SP8.

This was a copied instance and was converted using the following documentation.

(UNIX) Convert a Manually Copied Instance Environment into an Environment that can be Upgraded Successfully

Cause

The upgrade log reports that a lot links are present as physical files.

 Entry "/opt/CA/SharedComponents/bin/setpasswd" is not a symbolic link.
 Entry "/opt/CA/SharedComponents/bin/setpasswd" is not a symbolic link.
 Entry "/opt/CA/SharedComponents/JRE/1.5.0_07/lib/PA_RISC2.0/hotspot" is not a symbolic link.
 Entry "/opt/CA/WorkloadAutomationAE/JRE_WA/1.6.0_14/bin/ControlPanel" is not a symbolic link.
 Entry "/opt/CA/WorkloadAutomationAE/autosys/lib/libicuuc.sl.46" is not a symbolic link.
 Entry "/opt/CA/WorkloadAutomationAE/autosys/lib/libcurl.sl" is not a symbolic link.

These files need to be present as symbolic link.

Environment

Release : 11.3.5

Resolution

While copying the instance the backup software traversed the symbolic links and copied them as physical files which caused the Upgrade to fail.

After creating symbolic links the issue has been resolved.
