OnCommand System Manager 3.1.1 doesn't tolerate Java 8 Existence

Per a Java.com recommendation, I upgraded to the java 8 jre for Windows this morning.  Afterwards, System Manager gave errors that it could not authenticate securley.  

 

After uninstalling java 8, functionality was restored.

 

Any ideas on how to force System Manager to use the java 7 client w/ the java 8 client installed as well?

Hello bsnyder27,

 

could you find a solution for this? We are having the same problem now.

 

 

Re: OnCommand System Manager 3.1.1 doesn't tolerate Java 8 Existence

Only to uninstall java 8 and go back to the latest release of java 7.

Remove Java 8.x and then revert to the version of Java that was working before the update to 8.x. If you are unsure what version was being run before the update, download Java 7u45 64bit, or 7u65 64bit.

Future instances of OnCommand System Manager are expected to function with Java 8.x.

If issue exists even after reverting to Java 7u65 64bit or 7u45 64bit, perform a manual uninstallation.

 1. Uninstall all Java versions listed in Control Panel/Program and Features.
 2. Make a backup of registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Javasoft.
 3. Delete the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Javasoft and all of its subkeys.
 4. Rename Java folder to Java.bak inside both %ProgramFiles% and/or %ProgramFiles(x86)%.
 5. Download and Install either Java 7u65 64bit or 7u45 64bit here.
 6. If launching OnCommand System Manager is successful, remove backups made in steps 2 and 4

 

Thanks

If you run it using the .jar file instead of the .exe file it will work using Java 8.

 

"C:\Program Files\NetApp\OnCommand System Manager\SystemManager.jar"

Hello

You can use the last version of System manager 3.1.2RC1 , it works fine with java 8

But beware, version 3.1.2RC1 doesn't work with java 7

Other Java programs detect which JVMs are installed, display a list and allow the selection of the JVM to be used.

Re: OnCommand System Manager 3.1.1 doesn't tolerate Java 8 Existence

I'm attempting to install 3.1.2RC1 and I'm getting the error that it requires Java 7.  Are we sure 3.1.2RC1 uses Java 8?

Re: OnCommand System Manager 3.1.1 doesn't tolerate Java 8 Existence

 

I tried 3.1.2RC1 with Java 8 and it didn't work.
