Micro Focus Filr 3.2


When upgrading a Filr system configured with NetIQ Access Manager which originally started as a Filr 1.x system to Filr 3.2, the following error may appear when accessing the Filr Port 8443 Console:

 HTTP Status 500 - Error creating bean with name ‘sPropsUtil’

 The /var/opt/novell/tomcat-filr/logs/appserver.log file will show the following error during the Filr startup:

 2017-07-05 14:27:35,240 ERROR [localhost-startStop-1] [org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoader] - Context initialization failed

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'OAuth2ResourceServerFilter' defined in ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/context/security-auth-oauth2.xml]: Cannot resolve reference to bean 'authenticationProcessingFilterEntryPoint' while setting bean property 'authenticationEntryPoint'; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.NoSuchBeanDefinitionException: No bean named 'authenticationProcessingFilterEntryPoint' is defined


A fix for this issue is available. Please contact Micro Focus Customer Care with reference to this TID for further assistance. 


Some configuration files are not properly updated when upgrading to Filr 3.x when using NAM.
