CA error - when adding a new job.

Hi,

Receive the below error while invoking a job on CA.

when try to add a new job ->select template->Select Environment->Select Initial upgrade->Exception comes

jre1.6.0_03 installed in the server.

Exception java.lang.NumberFormatException caught in sun.misc.FloatingDecimal.readJavaFormatString() empty String java.lang.NumberFormatException: empty String at sun.misc.FloatingDecimal.readJavaFormatString(Unknown Source) at java.lang.Float.valueOf(Unknown Source) at com.peoplesoft.pt.changeassistant.Job.initStatus(Job.java:715) at

Performed the below action but issue not resolved.

--Make sure that when creating the Environments for the Upgrade, that the correct ids and passwords have been entered.  A userid and userid password plus the accessid and accessid password need to be entered.  The connectid, many times "People", should not be entered where accessid is supposed to be entered. 

--Reinstall the Change Assistant

--Be sure that the accessid and password being used is valid. 

--Be sure that there is not an & character in PSRELEASE.Releaselabel column.  Change this to a text 'and' if you find one there.


Thanks

    Hi,

    Just reading the message it says that it expects a number where a empty string is found.
    Check the CA configuration and see if you missed any fields that need to be filled in.

    And have you installed the correct version of CA, meaning
    if you are in an upgrade the CA of the new version,
    if you installed a PeopleTools Patch, the CA that comes with the that PeopleTools Patch.
    After each PeopleTools Patch you need to reinstall CA.

    Hi ,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I am doing the upgrade from PT8.50.11 to PT8.52.07

    I have installed PT8.52 tools and applied patch over the installed new PSHOME(PT8.52) and made my PS home to be PT8.52.07

    Then I installed the CA for PT8.52.07 and faced the above error.


    Also, I tried installing only PT8.52 with out installing any tools patch(PT8.52.07) and configured the CA and this CA works fine for me with out any issue.

    I am not sure, If the delivered path(PT8.52.07) have some problem with CA.

    Thank You!

    Although not necessarily when installing the full Tools patch, you can also update the CA only to 8.52.07

    https://psft-updates.oracle.com/ice/Resolutions/878997/PT85207-PSCA.htm

    Try following the installation manual in the zip file from the above link and see if it helps.
    It really sounds like a caching issue (CA, Webserver).
    I cannot find any reference that this is due to 8.52.07.

    I will update my local sandbox to 8.52.07 and see if I run in the same issue.
    I'll keep you posted.

    In the installation notes of PeopleTools 8.52.07 at the bottom it says:

    IMPORTANT: Please read this section in its entirety before applying the PeopleTools 8.52.07 patch. This section covers any last-minute information or existing issues that may impact your PeopleSoft implementation whether or not you choose to apply this PeopleTools patch. This section does not list the items fixed/included in this patch. Information on patch content can be accessed via instructions found at the bottom of this UserDoc.


    13906590 – Change Assistant gives error while creating a new job for upgrade

    Problem: Change Assistant gives error while creating a new job for upgrade

    Workaround:

    DB2 customers running Change Assistant must set the variable 'override_connection_reset' to the value 1 in the following registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PeopleSoft\PeopleTools\Release8.40\Profiles\Default\Database Options

    When they are done using Change Assistant, they must change the value to 0 before they use any other PeopleSoft 2 tier applications.

    That look a lot like your issue :)
    Try setting the registry key value as defined above to see if it solves your issue.

    I can confirm that I get the same error.

    Applied pt8.52.07
    reinstalled CA,
    redeployed PIA,
    downloaded upgrade template to PT852,
    setup config in CA
    Imported template
    Create enviroment
    Tried to create a new Job and ran into the same error.
    Tried creating and setting the registery value override_connection_reset with value 1
    Tried to create a new Job and ran into the same error.

    I would say create a call at Oracle on this, because it really looks like a bug.

    Sorry for the bad news.

    Hakan

    I even tried
    removing the installl dir of CA
    reinstalling CA
    Delete Configmanager cache
    setup config CA
    Imported template
    Create enviroment
    Tried to create a new Job and ran into the same error.

    Then I tried to update CA according to.
    https://psft-updates.oracle.com/ice/Resolutions/878997/PT85207-PSCA.htm
    Tried to create a new Job and ran into the same error.

    This is getting annoying. :(

    Did you ever get this figured out? I am getting the same error after upgrading pt from 8.51.09 to 8.51.17. I have a feeling the a server reboot might help. Unfortunatly, I can not reboot the box until after hours. :)

    Think that I have also gotten this error after windows updates. I was able to reinstall CA to fix.

    let me know if you found a fix.
