Release : 21.2

Component : Spectrum Integrations


For a currently unknown and undetermined reason the axis2.war is not properly deployed during upgrades. No reproduction scenario has been found yet to show a root cause that can be resolved.


First, make sure that the user being used is a Spectrum Administrator account.

Next, the issue is likely due to Axis2 not being properly deployed after upgrade.

  1. Confirm the axis2.war file is present in the webapps directory
  2. Delete the $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/axis2 directory.
  3. Restart the Spectrum Tomcat Service
  4. Reset the HTTPS configuration in axis2.xml if using HTTPS for OC.
  5. Edit the $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/axis2/META-INF/context.xml file.
    1. Check if the file is present.
      1. If not found in the $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/axis2/META-INF directory a version is also found in the $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/spectrum/META-INF/ directory.
      2. Copy a version to the $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/axis2/META-INF/ directory if one is not present.
    2. Edit the $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/axis2/META-INF/context.xml file. Change this line:
      1. <Context path=“/spectrum” docBase=“spectrum”>
    3. Edit it to read as follows:
      1. <Context path=“/axis2” docBase=“spectrum”>
    4. Save the changes.
  6. Restart the Spectrum Tomcat Service.
