Found with 7.0.0-SNAPSHOT rev. 6fbc8ef8957 .
With our automated test we hit NullPointerException, when running a supportextract tool to collect data on upgraded instance (5.5.0=>7.0.0). We hit this issue when upgrading from version < 6.0.0. I tried also upgrade from 5.5.0 to 6.5.1 and I didn't hit the issue.
Steps to reproduce:
- Install DS-5.5.0
- Do the upgrade to 7.0.0
- Run supportextract tool
We have following NPE and messages on stderr.
Do not hit the NPE and have more detailed message, if there is an issue. It is not obvious why the tool can't collect all files.
It is possible to reproduce the issue with automated test:
Be sure to put attached example.cfg to /path/to/framework/config/ and change the default hostname and java path according to your workspace settings.
