    It is applicable for any Smart IT version that is running on the same box as DWP where DWP is upgraded to latest.


    If both Smart IT and DWP are on the SAME server Smart IT 18.08, Smart IT 19.02 stops working after upgrading DWP to 19.02.

    You will run into below errors in the tomcat logs

    Tomcat log:

    DWP 19.02 jars are not compatible with Smart 19.02 ones, and viceversa. That was changed on this version as DWP and SmartIT should not be installed on the same Tomcat since 18.05. DWP 18.11 jars still are compatible with both applications.


    To workaround this issue, please navigate to the "Tomcat\external-conf\lib" directory and replace all rsso jar files with 18.11 rsso jar files (Please find them attached in article ) and restart Tomcat.

    Note: It is NOT recommended to have both DWP and Smart IT on the same server in production.
    Please, install both applications on different servers, if that is not possible, then use different Tomcats. That is documented below:

    Another scenario where we observed that the Smart IT with RSSO keeps spinning.
    1. Compare the file size of the rsso jars with working environment {In 1808 it worked so compared the file size of the jar files}

    File size of the smartit 19_02 installer
    [root@localhost logs]# ls -ltr /tmp/rss*
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root   root     222363 Jul 12 09:53 /tmp/rsso-agent-all-RSSO_19.02.00-RC4.jar
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root   root       5578 Jul 12 09:53 /tmp/rsso-client-impl-RSSO_19.02.00-RC4.jar
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root   root       8632 Jul 12 09:53 /tmp/rsso-sdk-atsso-RSSO_19.02.00-RC4.jar

    File size of the smartit 18_08 installer
    [root@localhost tomcat]# ls -l /apps/tomcat/tomcat8.5_smartit/external-conf/lib/
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 192452 Jul 12 10:15 rsso-agent-all.jar
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   5578 Jul 12 10:15 rsso-client-impl.jar
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   8632 Jul 12 10:15 rsso-sdk-atsso.jar

    Replaced the jars of 1808 version in 1902.
