Steps to Reproduce

Run the script with the '--force true' option.

Root Cause

These warnings are normal for the update process as it is performed stand-alone outside of an application server. Messages about the inability to access JNDI resource references are all normal and can be safely ignored.


These warnings are completely normal for the install process and are no reason to be concerned.  You can move ahead to your next step without any problems.
