Default tdiserver Will Not Launch

Yesterday I was working with a fresh install of Tivoli Directory Integrator 7.0 Fix Pack 5 (the required version for IBM Connections), every time I tried to run an assembly line I was faced with this message

Looking at the log I saw this error ‘api.remote.naming.port’ : ‘1099null’

Searching around I find suggestions to check the Default.tdiserver file in the Workspace directory, but the value there looked correct.

Finally I found this entry in the Lotus Connections Wiki, which contained this information

“Tivoli Directory Integrator Configuration Editor port issue: If you see the message "Invalid value specified for ‘api.remote.naming.port’ " when working with the Tivoli Directory Integrator Configuration Editor, you can resolve the issue by manually setting the api.remote.naming.port in the file located in the <TDI_solution _directory>.”

Sure enough when I looked in my solution.propertied I found the bad entry

Once I removed the ‘null’ appended to the port and restarted TDI, the default server started right up

    Btw, the link to the wiki has moved.
    The correct link to the “Troubleshooting TDI” in the wiki is:
