Using Content Server on Windows

When attempting to configure Content Server, an error window with following information is displayed:

  Domain Creation Failed!

  Domain Location: C:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\idc

  Reason: null


  Traceback (innermost last):
    File "<iostream>", line 17, in ?
  TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for +: 'NoneType' and 'str'


The issue can be reproduced using following steps:

  1. Install JDK 1.6.0_18 or higher
  2. Install Weblogic Server
  3. Run the Repository Creation Utility against the database
  4. Install ECM
  5. Run ECM_ORACLE_HOME\common\bin\config.cmd (ECM_ORACLE_HOME represents the ECM Oracle Home directory, where ECM is installed):
    • Select the domain source and specify a name and a location for the UCM domain
    • Configure an administrator user name and password
    • Configure the server start mode and JDK
    • Configure JDBC
    • Create the domain

The error gets reported when the domain gets created.
