Information in this document applies to any platform.


After upgrading to WLS 12.1.3, unable to deploy shared libraries using weblogic.Deployer command with attributes -targets [CLUSTER] and -name [no_value] 

i.e This issue is seen only while deploying the application to a cluster and when no value is specified for "-name" attribute.

Note :

- This issue is NOT seen while deploying the application to a DefaultServer. 

- "-name" attribute should contain a deployment name for the deployed application.

If you do not specify this attribute, WebLogic Server assigns a deployment name to the application, based on its archive file or exploded directory.
