The uimserver_ia_install.log reports the below Exception:



DEBUG probe.AdeController:distributePackageSynchronous:114 [Thread-43]  - Sending getPackageDistributionStatus.

(this error continues in loop)




CA UIM 8.1 upgrade to CA UIM 8.4

Windows 2008 r2

MS SQL DB 2008 r2 




The errors in the log point to an issue with the automated_deployment_engine which is giving an error in a loop in the install log.




To resolve this issue follow these steps:


First cancel the current upgrade attempt.


1. Make sure that the Nimsoft Service is ON in the Primary Hub

2. Deactivate automated_deployment_engine.

3. Go into /Nimsoft/probes/service/automated_deployment_engine/

4. Backup this folder to your desktop before continuing!

5. Delete the database files (automated_deployment_engine.h2, automated_deployment_engine.lock)

6. Delete all files IN ade_package_temp AND ade_xml_temp folders.

7. Activate ADE.


Now re-run the install and the install will complete successfully
