Steps to Reproduce

Try to run BIX extraction from the command line using this classpath

-classpath ".:$BIX_DIR//lib/prbootphase2.jar:$BIX_DIR//lib/prbootstrap.jar:$BIX_DIR//lib/prdbcp.jar:$BIX_DIR/lib/jsr94-1.0.jar:$BIX_DIR//lib/db2jcc_v95.jar:$BIX_DIR/lib/db2jcc_license_cisuz.jar"

Root Cause

The classpath does not include the required jar files to run the BIX extraction from the command line in a Pega 7.1.7 environment.


This issue is resolved by making the following change to the PRPC operating environment: 

In the Pega 7.1.7 media in the Additional_Products/BIX/lib directory there are 4 jar files that need to be included on the classpath along with the JDBC driver jar files.

To your classpath add the BIX 7.1.7 versions of the prbootstrap.jar, prbootstrap-api.jar, prdbcp.jar, jsr94-1.0.jar and your database specific JDBC jar files to the classpath.
