Incorrect parameter in BRP.INI file causes Batch Refresh Process to fail

Incorrect parameter in BRP.INI file causes Batch Refresh Process to fail


When running the Batch Refresh Process (BRP) in Enterprize Analyzer, the following error occurs ...

Unhandled Exception : System.FormatException: Input String was not in a correct format. 

at System.Number.StringToNumber<String str, NumberStyles options, NumberBuffer& number, NumberFOrmatInfo info, Boolean parseDecimal> 

at System.Number.ParseInt32<String s,NumberStyles style, NumberFormatInfo info> 

at  runBRP.Context.PopulateCollections<> 

at  runBRP.Context.LoadParamsFromFile<String sFile> 

at  runBRP.Program.Main<String[] args>

What is the cause of this and how can it be rectified?


When the BRP is configured from the Enterprise Analyzer Administration tool, the BRP.ini file is generated using the User Interface.

The contents of an example BRP.ini , from the Spanish customer, is below and contains an invalid entry (highlighted) which caused the failure reported.

Debug =  1

RMWInstallPath = C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\Enterprise Analyzer

BRPInstallPath = M:\MFA\BRP_LCMM

BRPRunType = Master

Site = client Workspace


ObsoleteProcessing = 0

RunIMSAnalysis = 0

CleanQueue =Verdadero

RestoreIndices = 1

RunExecReport = 0

RunWebGen =  0

LaunchHCC =  1

DropInd = Auto

WaitHCCBefore = No

WaitHCC =  15

ExtraHCC =  1

GeneratePCF = both

The problem entry  is  "CleanQueue =Verdadero"

The entry should contain either "CleanQueue =True" or "CleanQueue =False"

Although "Verdadero" is Spanish for True, the process objects and the BRP batch run fails.

Correct the entry to either "CleanQueue =True" or "CleanQueue =False" and re-run the BRP process again
