"Exception: CreateProcess error=206, The filename or extension is too long" in WebLogic server while installing ActiveVOS
Problem Description
The user is unable to install ActiveVOS on MDM 10.3 HotFix 1 on Windows Server 2016. The DB is SQL Server 2016.

When the user runs postInstallSetup.bat, ActiveVOS installation is throwing the following error:

​Exception : CreateProcess error=206, The filename or extension is too long
To resolve this issue, do as follows:

1. Navigate to WL_HOME\wlserver\server\lib and run the following command:

 java -jar wljarbuilder.jar

 This would generate a new jar file wlfullclient.jar that consolidates all the classpath dependencies into a single jar, thus reducing the classpath length.

2. Edit the deployer.xml under AVOS_HOME\Server\server-enterprise\weblogic_config\bin and replace the following entries:


<target name="init">


      <taskdef name="wlconfig" classname="" classpath="${appserver.location}/server/lib/weblogic.jar"/>

      <taskdef name="wlserver" classname="" classpath="${appserver.location}/server/lib/weblogic.jar"/>

      <taskdef name="wldeploy" classname="" classpath="${appserver.location}/server/lib/weblogic.jar"/>



<target name="init">  

    <path id="classpath">

        <fileset dir="${appserver.location}/server/lib" includes="wlfullclient.jar" />

        <fileset dir="${appserver.location}/server/lib" includes="wls-api.jar" />

        <fileset dir="${appserver.location}/modules" includes="" />

        <fileset dir="${appserver.location}/modules" includes="" />


        <taskdef name="wldeploy" classname="" classpathref="classpath"/>


3. Run the avos.deploy with Dinstall.avos.patch=true along with other parameters.
