Information in this document applies to any platform.
OTD truncates <vs>-obj.conf file after changing an origin server IP Address through Admin Server console.
When trying to start the Server, the following errors are displayed:
[2015-04-27T04:17:22+02:00] [admin-server] [NOTIFICATION:1] [OTD-63011]  [ecid: c3P010J4000000000] [rid: 0] [pid: 26669] for host 10.0.1.100 trying to POST /admin/start-instance, service-j2ee reports: Exception: The operation failed with errors on the following nodes:[[Error on node 'mx0000001811003': OTD-63603 An error occurred while starting the server.
[ERROR:16] [OTD-10255] Error parsing file PRODH_LIVE-obj.conf, line 29, column 1: Expected ""
[ERROR:16] [OTD-10455] File server.xml line 61: Error processing element: Error processing file PRODH_LIVE-obj.conf
[ERROR:32] server initialization failed
This starts to occur after manually changing the obj.conf file to add an "<If></If>" block.
It doesn't occur every time, but randomly.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1] Change something in the Admin Server console
2] Deploy changes
3] /admin-config/config-store//config/<vs>-obj.conf is truncated
4] //config/-obj.conf is truncated
5] Server won't start with above error.
