Steps to Reproduce

Not Applicable

Root Cause

A software use or operation error. Name space bindings for PegaRULESDefaultSchema and PegaDATADefaultSchema were defined at Websphere Cell scope.

This prevented the Pega application from reading them correctly and thus the schema names for Pega database were not known for bootstrapping.


Make the following change to the operating environment:

Change the scope of name space bindings for PegaRULESDefaultSchema and 
PegaDATADefaultSchema to Server instead of Cell.
