Issue

Need to update the Java JDK that Process Automation is using.

Resolution/Workaround:

Steps to change the Java version

1.  Stop CA Process Automation Orchestrator

2.  Install JDK acquired from Java.com

3.  If the Java major version number is changing - for instance from 1.7 to 1.8 - you must first uninstall the older version.

4.  Update the CA\PAM\server\c2o\bin\c2osvcw.conf file to point at the new JDK, commenting out the existing lines to use as a reference:

#wrapper.java.command=C:/program files/java/jdk1.7.0_24/bin/java
wrapper.java.command=C:/program files/java/jdk1.7.0_91/bin/java

#wrapper.java.classpath.2=C:/program files/java/jdk1.7.0_24/lib/tools.jar
wrapper.java.classpath.2=C:/program files/java/jdk1.7.0_91/lib/tools.jar

4.  Start CA Process Automation Orchestrator.

 

 

Additional Information:

Once Process Automation is working the commented lines can be removed without need to restart the Orchestrator.
