After upgrading to UIM 8.51 sngtw probe stops processing tickets.  The following exception may be observed in the sngtw log file:

Release: CNMSPP99000-8.51-Unified Infrastructure Mgmt-Server Pack-- On Prem


This issue is due to the fact that UIM 8.51 includes Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 8 and the sngtw probe has not been updated to support JRE 8.


An updated version of the probe is being developed to support JRE 8.  In the meantime, there are two current ways to resolve this issue.

  1. A beta version of sngtw 2.22 is available from support
  2. Alter the startup parameter of the existing 2.21 probe to use JRE 7

To update the probe configuration to load JRE 7, perform the following steps

1.  Open Infrastructure Manager

2. Right click on the sngtw probe

3. Click Edit

4. Change the Command field to read the following:

<startup java 1.7>

5. After clicking OK you may now restart the probe
