Publishing to WebSphere issue: “Upload is not to…”

This has been an issue that has plagued me a few times. The problem is that when you are publishing from Rational Application Developer to a remote WAS instance, you get a message "Failure Uploading Archive to Server", and in the server logs, you see:

Download is not from …/config/temp/download configuration repository: /publishrecord.remote
Upload is not to …/config/temp/upload configuration repository: /

The source of the problem is that you have a leftover deployment still sitting in your temp directory. Whenever RAD publishes to WAS (don’t you love IBM’s acronyms), it copies the EAR file to "
<wasprofileroot>/config/temp/". I found mine under:
/QIBM/UserData/WebSphere/AppServer/V6/Base/profiles/default/config/temp (this was an iSeries install….so don’t freak out about the install directory).

This was on WAS 6.0.2.7 and RAD 6.0.1.1.
Once I deleted this, I was able to upload the file fine, and RAD successfully published. You might want to bookmark this as it WILL bite you in the future.

    Which directory did you have to delete? I’m facing that problem and I delete the profileDir/config/temp directory but the same problem keeps appearing.
