Our systems currently have aem-6.3.0-cfp-2.0.zip installed.
Making the system version 22.214.171.124
We need to roll forms out to this system.
To do this, I would normally install AEM-FORMS-126.96.36.199-<OS>-4.1.74
The pre-requisites for this package are:
This works on my local system. Now that I am looking to roll this out to production I have checked the release notes for 6.3 SP2 it suggests installing 6.3.3 instead:
AEM 188.8.131.52 Release Notes
Adobe Experience Manager 184.108.40.206, released on September 12, 2018, is the latest Service Pack (SP) for AEM 6.3 that includes all AEM 6.3 Service Packs and Cumulative Fix Packs till date.
For all updates on AEM 6.3 versions, it is recommended to install the latest Service Pack 220.127.116.11.
So, I tried installing the following on our 18.104.22.168 system:
This appears to be ok , until I look at the menu under sites in the touchui (example.com/sites.html) it shows an error half way down the menu:
On a fresh install installing these 3 packages works fine. I did this to validate my process is correct - I wait for the logs to stop and restart between packages.
So, then then I tried to uninstall aem-6.3.0-cfp-2.0.zip before installing the 3 packages, this gives an error:
Error: This item [/etc/packages/day/cq60/product/.snapshot/cq-content-6.3.66.zip] does not exist anymore
Should I be able to install Forms 6.3.3 on top of 22.214.171.124? If so, what is the process?
If not - should we just install AEM forms 6.3.2?
Hi Jim - Indeed the same Wasil . Please log a DayCare ticket, I'll look into this further.
That would have been great, but unfortunately that didn't work. (recompiled JSPs and clientlibs)
As we are working on the same project (I guess you are the same Wasil ) can I ask you to look into this one for me? It is the highest priority item at the moment.
Do you need a day care ticket?
Closing this issue as it appears to be due to other packages on our instance of aem.
We will continue to investigate this via the day care ticket.
Great - thanks Wasil.
We can share the details on here once we know the answer in case others encounter this problem
Hi Jim, It might be something with the changed code upon application of SP/CFP. You could try after recompiling JSPs/clientlibs.
 How to force a recompilation of all Sling scripts jsps, java, and sightly in AEM 6.4
I may be missing something. But isn't that what I tried and got an error from the ui in my original post? Here:
Refer to screenshot in original post
The error makes the touch ui unusable. Can you try this yourself to see if you get the same error? Or suggest how my approach is different to what you are saying in option 2
Please apply patches in the order as suggested in option 2.
Start with 126.96.36.199, apply 6.3.3 -> apply AEM 188.8.131.52 -> Apply Forms 184.108.40.206
Thabks for the reply.
The instances of AEM in question already have aem-6.3.0-cfp-2.0.zip (not a fresh install as described in option 1 and 2 in your reply). What should I do in that case to install forms?
Uninstalling of CFP or SP is not supported. The basic convention of any form package is that it's equivalent AEM package should exist on the system. Let's take an example here
1. Applying an SP
A fresh AEM instance with base forms package-> apply AEM 6.3.3 -> apply forms 6.3.3.
2. For CFP you need SP beforehand. So order becomes
A fresh AEM instance with base forms package-> apply 6.3.3 -> apply AEM 220.127.116.11 -> Apply Forms 18.104.22.168
In case you mess up with the package install, just roll back the CRX and start over. Thus it's very important to backup your CRX and then apply the patches.
