com.microfocus.starteam.search.utility.exception.SearchException: Error while trying to retrieve Starteam server port

The Borland Search log (starteam-search.log) shows the following error extract:

11-04-14 10:15:31 DEBUG ConnectionFactory                        - DBURL: jdbc:sqlserver://.\SSE2012_ST;DatabaseName=StarTeam;SelectMethod=cursor
11-04-14 10:15:32 WARN  ConfigurationsData                       - Configuration Training is not ready for indexing
11-04-14 10:15:32 DEBUG ConfigurationsData                       - com.microfocus.starteam.search.utility.exception.SearchException: Error while trying to retrieve Starteam server port

This occurs when the starteam-server-configs.xml file uses an invalid or DBServerName format.

For example:

<option name="DBServerName" value=".\SSE2012_ST"/>

To fix this issue upgrade to Server 14.3 HF1 or change to specify a hostname or ipaddress

<option name="DBServerName" value="hostname\SSE2012_ST"/>

or

<option name="DBServerName" value="IPADDRESS\SSE2012_ST"/>
