1.The CF4 installation fails if the Portal URI has been changed.
2. If you have disabled automatic syndication, it is re-enabled after CF4 installation completes.
ssue #1 - The CF4 installation fails during the post-install-configure step "CONFIG-WP-PTF-CF" if you have changed the Portal URI to something other than the default /wps. The failure occurs during the sub-script 'run-wcm-admin-task' here:
[echo] VirtualPortalContext = , VirtualPortalHost =
[echo] Initialized: host my.portal.com vpContext
[echo] To call ConfigModuleClient: host my.portal.com vpContext
[ConfigModuleClient] Connecting to login address: customp://my.portal.com:10039/custom/wcm/login

[ConfigModuleClient] No output will be shown while this task is running. Check the SystemOut.log for progress information.
--- Exception Thrown ---
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/PortalServer/wcm/prereq.wcm/config/includes/prereq.wcm_cfg.xml:3829: An exception occurred while executing the task: Header field 'Set-Cookie' is null. The login failed. Can not continue.
Solution - This is addressed in WCM APAR PM84880.
Issue #2 - If you have set the WCMConfigService property 'connect.moduleconfig.syndication.inittasks' to 'false' in order to disable automatic syndication, this property will be reset to 'true' after the CF4 installation completes.
Note: You can disable syndication by doing to each syndicator and disabling it there as opposed to setting this property
Solution - This is addressed in WCM APAR PM85264.
Both PM84880 and PM85264 have been packaged into a single download. You must apply it in conjunction with CF4 to avoid both of these issues:
- Add both CF4 and "18.104.22.168-WCM-IFPM84880-PM85264-CF04.zip" as repositories to IBM Installation Manager
- When prompted, select both for installation
