Release : 17.3

Cause in viewService.conf is pointing to jre8 instead of JDK (OOTB).


1. Take a backup of the viewService.conf located in <local drive>:\Program Files\CA\Service Catalog\view\conf\

2. Edit viewService.conf and locate (around line 7)

3. Set the path to point to a valid JDK folder. OOTB the path is: Files/CA/Service Catalog/embedded/jdk/bin/java

4. Save changes.

5. Start Catalog services.
