System error on startup after upgrading from PRPC 5.5 SP1



After upgrading from PRPC 5.5 SP1 to Pega 7.1.8 and when tried to start the system, it fails because the system name of developer is used.

Error Messages

Steps to Reproduce

Upgrade from PRPC 5.5 SP1 to Pega 7.1.8 and try to start system.

Root Cause

If the Dynamic System Setting for the default systemName is not set, the upgrade code is setting it to developer system name instead of PRPC.  This is fixed in a later release.


Perform the following local-change: 

1.Override the system name in the prconfig.xml file with the default value of "prpc" or a valid system name for this environment.

<env name="identification/systemName" value="prpc" />

2.Restart the system and then update the dynamic system setting to match the correct system name. 

Once the dynamic system setting has been updated the entry from prconfig.xml can be removed.
