Applies to:

Oracle Application Integration Architecture Foundation Pack - Version 2.4 to 2.5 [Release 2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


As part of the installation of Application Integration Architecture, BPEL processes are registered on the ESB system. Sometimes in the log file the generic error appears:

[deployESBSuitcase] Deployment Attempt Response :
[deployESBSuitcase] <errors>
[deployESBSuitcase] <error code="0" severity="10">
[deployESBSuitcase] <description>An unhandled exception has been thrown in the ESB system. The exception reported is: "oracle.tip.esb.console.exception.ConsoleTransactionException: File repository not initialized.May be ESB bootstrap failed
[deployESBSuitcase] Please review ESB prameters for their correctness.

Setting a 'sleep' step could provide addition information.
