When running the cleanup script, the files are deleted successfully, but the script fails with an error like:
<APPIAN_HOME>/server/_scripts/ant/aedeletefiles.xml:75: The directory <APPIAN_HOME>/services/bin does not exist
There are two possible causes:
To determine the cause of the issue, review the contents of the appian-home.properties file, located in <APPIAN_HOME>/ear/suite.ear/conf. Ensure that AE_HOME is correctly set to the location of <APPIAN_HOME>.
If AE_HOME is not correctly set, then update the path to point to the correct location to resolve the issue.
If AE_HOME is already correctly set, then this error is a false positive caused by an update in Appian 16.1 accounting for future changes in Appian 16.2. In this case, the error can be safely disregarded.
This article applies to all versions of Appian.
