A P8 administrator for a company just finished deploying IBM FileNet P8 V5.1. The administrator
wants to use FileNet Enterprise Manager (FEM) to logon to P8 to perform further tasks. An error
occurs immediately upon logging on to P8. The administrator would like to use log4j to
troubleshoot the issue. Which sample log4j file should the administrator use?
A. <install path>\FileNet\ContentEngine\samples\log4j.xml.server
B. <install path>\FileNet\ContentEngine\samples\log4j.properties.client
C. <install path>\FileNet\ContentEngine\config\samples\log4j.xml.server
D. <install path>\FileNet\ContentEngine\config\samples\log4j.properties.client
An upgrade to a basic IBM FileNet P8 V5.1 BPM installation from IBM FileNet P8 V4.0 is being
planned. To minimize the downtime the customer wants to do staged upgrades. The Application
Engine is at V4.0.2 with the latest fix pack already installed. What is the best way to determine the
impact of installing fix packs in planning for this scenario?
A. No extra planning is necessary as you always install the latest fix packs during any upgrade.
B. Use the IBM FileNet P8 V5.X Fix Pack Compatibility Matrix to determine which fix packs are
C. Go to Fix Central, review the fix pack Readme files for the new version applicable fix packs,
and only include those that are marked”REQUIRED”.
D. Go to Fix Central, review all the latest component fix pack Readme files for dependencies, and
exclude them if the fixes do not relate to thesystem.
A P8 administrator fails to logon to an IBM FileNet P8 V5.1 system when using Workplace XT.
FileNet Enterprise Manager (FEM) is able to connect to P8 without issues. The administrator
would like to use log4j with Workplace XT to further troubleshoot the issue. In which directory
should the log4j file be placed so that logging is enabled for Workplace XT?
A. <install path>/FileNet/Config/AE
B. <install path>/FileNet/Config/WebClient
C. <install path>/FileNet/CEClient/config/samples
D. <install path>/FileNet/AE/CE_API/config/samples
A consultant has installed an IBM FileNet Process Engine client fix pack on a 3 node, horizontally
load balanced Application Engine installation. After an interactive installation, some users are
seeing the same problem intermittently, rather than constantly, as it was before the fix pack was
installed. What could still be the issue?
A. The fix pack did not correct the problem.
B. The fix pack install script did not deploy the war file properly.
C. The fix pack installer did not delete an application server temp directory.
D. The fix pack install script did not delete an Application Server temp directory.
