After upgrading from APM 10.2 to APM 10.5 we cannot use 8443 port as the Enterprise Manager web server Secure Port as connecting to the web server home page gives an http 500 server error. If we use a different port i.e. 8444 it works ok.

If we enable DEBUG logging in the Enterprise manager we see the following at the point of failure.

The problem is caused by stale cache information in the Enterprise Manager.


This is reported in a Standalone EM linux environment after performing an upgrade in place using APM


The solution is to clear the Enterprise manager cache

Stop the Enterprise Manager

In folder <EM_HOME>/product/enterprisemanager/configuration - remove all files except config.ini

In folder <EM_HOME>/work - remove all files

restart the Enterprise Manager
