CA Privileged Identity Manager Tech Tip by Aaron Armagost, Principal Support Engineer for June 7th.


We have found many instances now where after install 12.9.x of PIM Java JDK 1.8u51 can auto update causing product issues like Jboss not starting due to missing Java.exe in Jboss hard coded path.

If you use the PrereqInstaller from the 3rd party tools JDK will be installed to C:\jdk1.8.0 and JRE to C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_51 by default.

The JDK update could change the path from our default C:\jdk1.8.0 to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_65\. We have found this is different than the auto-update feature of the JRE which will update JRE only.

We have created TEC1847189 on how to update the hard coded paths for the new JDK install paths.
