Console service doesn't start after 21.2.8 upgrade

CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration DX NetOps


I upgraded the Dev Platform form 20.2.1 to 21.2.8 and it was nearly perfect, but the Console service on the Console server won't start.  It appears to be a communication configuration issue between the DA and Console server.  DM/EM/SSO all start without issue, and I'm unable to get into SsoConfig. 

Cannot connect the to DX NetOps SSO Web Service.
Check if DX NetOps is running and retry.

Release : 21.2

There is a known issue in 21.2.8, the 'PDF.Max.Concurrent' cannot be increased beyond 5.

Fixed in 21.2.9 (general table setting), and later in 21.2.10 (fixes > 5).

The DM logs are very sparse. There is barely any logging in them...

Looking at the largest DM wrapper, the last restart was at:

STATUS | wrapper  | 2022/04/14 16:52:48 | Launching a JVM...and soon after...INFO   | jvm 1    | 2022/04/14 16:53:05 | Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentExceptionINFO   | jvm 1    | 2022/04/14 16:53:05 | 	at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.setCorePoolSize(Unknown Source) ~[?:?]INFO   | jvm 1    | 2022/04/14 16:53:05 | 	at ~[?:?]

Also seeing:

INFO   | jvm 1    | 2022/04/14 16:53:05 |       | Application does not have write permission for /CA/PerformanceCenter/DM/repository directory.

So the is fine, meaning the general table entries are bad...
looking at general.txt..

| PDF.Full.Max.Concurrent                      | 1                                                                                                                                               
| PDF.Max.Concurrent                           | 40                                            


Please run this MySQL syntax:

replace into netqosportal.general values ('PDF.Max.Concurrent', '5');

Then re-start the DM and PC services.
