Trying to start PPM app, an error is thrown in app-system log:
Unrecognized VM option 'PrintGCTimeStamps'
Unrecognized VM option 'PrintHeapAtGC'
This is caused by outdated JVM parameters.
If you recently upgraded Java to a higher version, some of the options will no longer be the same, this is expected.
  1. Open the server's properties.xml, and remove the JVM parameters above from the application server section.
  2. Then save the file and run the command to start the app service again.
