While updating an IBM Connections 5.5 environment to 5.5 CR2 I had an issue with the CCM (Connections Content Manager) upgrade scripts. The installation routine did not output any clear error message. After some research I found following output in the “fn-ce-update.log”:

I realised later, that the problem was indicated by following output summary, which is displayed directly after the beginning of the installation:

To fix this issue, you need to customize the "applicationserver.xml" which is located in "/FileNet/ContentEngine/tools/configure/profiles/CCM". Here you need to define the administrator password in the "ApplicationServerAdminPassword" property:

application_xml
application_xml

After adding the password, you need to rerun the upgrade script.
