Symptoms

When attempting to apply a change package or upload an environment, the step 're-validation' never seems to end.  We let the process run overnight and it never ends.

"Re-Validation of the environment(s) will now occur.  This will take a few moments."  This is where it gets stuck...  The Change Assistant just sits there re-validating and never moves on.

Review the emf.log files for each of your PSEMAgents.

Scenario 1:
When the Agent crawls the PSHOME for an upgraded environment, it fails with the following error:

FATAL main EMF_CATEGORY - psae SFMAINT failed generating emf_psae.xml for mbean Appserver: path=/opt/psoft89,domain=DEV89,peerid=7,hotsname=psappsrv01.peoplesoft.com

General Error in XML doc generated by SFMAINT for mbean Appserver: path=/opt/psoft89,domain=DEV89,peerid=7,hotsname=psappsrv01.peoplesoft.com.
Root Cause Error parsing file %1.
 

Scenario 2:
When the Agent tries to send a large xml file to the hub, it fails with the following:

Sending pulse from 'com.peoplesoft.emf.peer:id=3'
