Upgrade CA Service Desk Manager from 12.9 or 14.1 to 14.1.02 - missing jar files after the upgrade to 14.1 causes HealthServlet slow performance, "Not Running" status for pdm_intrvlog_nxd, and other problems

Issue:

After upgrading CA Service Desk Manager from 12.x or from 14.1, to 14.1.02 (cumulative patch #2), you could encounter a situation whereby some ".jar" files are missing from the "bin" subdirectory of the CA Service Desk Manager base installation directory, $NX_ROOT\java\lib

Some symptoms that have been identified so far are as follows:

  1. The HealthServlet takes over 30 minutes to report back the status and reports that all is "OK".
     
  2. The output of pdm_status shows that "IntrvLogger (pdm_intrvlog_nxd)" is "Not Running".  It is not possible to start the Interval Logging process.
     
  3. It may not be possible to use Web Screen Painter
Environment:
Upgraded CA Service Desk Manager 14.1 environment
Cause:

A probable cause is that the ".jar" files were stopped from being copied onto the installation by a 3rd party antivirus or firewall program via corresponding rules or policies. 

The affected jar files may be limited to those included in cumulative patch #2 (14.1.02).

Resolution:
  1. Check your anti-virus and firewall settings.  Disable or fix the settings so that all files that are required to be installed by the CA Service Desk Manager product installer and patch installer to the servers in the environment are not prevented from being installed, applied and run.
     
  2. If you have fixed the anti-virus, re-install the CA Service Desk Manager product and patches.
     
  3. Verify that the $NX_ROOT\java\lib directory contains the files listed below. 
     
    Notes:
    This list may only be a subset of the files that could have been missing when upgrading to 14.1.02.
    The list may be different if you upgraded to 14.1.03 or higher. 
    The timestamps of the files may be different in your environment, depending on your cumulative and test patch levels.

  4. For future prevention of a similar problem, be sure to use the same antivirus/firewall settings for installing cumulative patches and test patches of CA Service Desk Manager as for installing the base product.
