Add Network process pattern error


I am setting up a lab environment to test the CIAC Starter Edition 3.0.1 and have been working on the products for monthes now.

When I run the "Add Network" query, I get this error near the end of the process:

The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error.

<nsapi-error-response>Internal Error: Illegal pattern character 'j'</nsapi-error-response>

Here is the global execution view:

And the error box:

Has any of you ever seen such an error? It ends the process and no network is created.

Thanks by advance.

Add Network process pattern error


I had heard that the Starter Edition was not compoatible with Windows "locales" other then US.

I made my portal installation on a US Windows 2008 R2, under US locales, but the system was provisioned from a template where initial locales where "french".

So the system was under french and the admin user (me) under US.

I tried to launch the RC and SL services manually from the cmd scripts instead of running them as services: 

it solved my problem.

So be careful, no-US citizens! Even the system locales of your OS must be US!

Thank you very much, you saved my day! I had this same problem and launching the services from the CMD scripts solved my problem.
