New FAQ: CmisRuntimeException with an Internal Server Error running A.A.A.R. with Solr Indexing

During the past months few users emailed me to ask for a support becausealfresco-pentaho they received an ‘Internal Server Error’ while running the A.A.A.R. v1.3. I would like to thank them for the energy they put to solve the problem and specially Gabriele Barbara that wrote the post I share below. The current post has been added to the A.A.A.R.’s FAQ hoping will help someone else.

Gabriele Barbara say:

Using the latest version of A.A.A.R. (v1.3) on Alfresco Community 4.2.c, Windows platform and MySQL database, you could get an error message.

ERROR 19-05 13:33:54,593 - Cmis Input documents before last update - Unxpected Error
ERROR 19-05 13:33:54,593 - Cmis Input documents before last update – org.apache.chemistry.opencmis.commons.exceptions.CmisRuntimeException: Internal Server Error

After running:

kitchen.bat /rep:"AAAR_Kettle" /job:"Get all" /dir:/Alfresco /user:admin /pass:admin /param:get_parents=true /level:Basic

The problem appears when the job goes to step “get nodes” (if in fact you are running

kitchen.bat /rep:"AAAR_Kettle" /job:"Get audit" /dir:/Alfresco /user:admin /pass:admin /level:Basic

 the job ends properly) and seems to be linked to the “SOLR SSL certificate”.

If in the file ‘<Alfresco>/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco-global.properties’ there is the line:


You can solve the problem by following these steps:

  • Shutdown Tomcat
  • Comment out the line below and replace with:
  • Save the file
  • Start Tomcat
  • Modify again  the file ‘<Alfresco>/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco-global.properties’ changing as described 
  • Save the changes and close the file

Now if you try again to run from the command line: 

kitchen.bat /rep:"AAAR_Kettle" /job:"Get all" /dir:/Alfresco /user:admin /pass:admin /param:get_parents=true /level:Basic

the execution of the job should be finished properly.
