Alfresco Runtime Exception: bootsrap failed

Question asked by trouble on Mar 17, 2013

I need a little help with my Alfresco installation.

First of all some environment information:
I'm running a 32-Bit Ubuntu 12.04 Server. It's a clean System just providing the Software required for Alfresco.
The Version of Alfresco I've loaded is 4.2 c. It's a fresh installation on tomcat7 from the *.zip file.

After the configuration I restarted the tomcat engine and get the following entry in the alfresco.log

ERROR [org.alfresco.repo.admin.patch.PatchExecuter] 02170002 org.alfresco.error.AlfrescoRuntimeException: 02170001 Bootstrap failed

That results in:
ERROR [org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoader] Context initialization failed
org.alfresco.error.AlfrescoRuntimeException: 02170003 Not all patches could be applied

I googled a time and tryed some supposed workarounds.
Mostly the problems occured after upgrading Alfresco.

I erased the data directory and droped mysql database and user.
I even cleaned the Alfresco installation and reinstalled (accidentally).

Could anybody please help me out or did anybody have the same problem and can provide me som information, why the patch fails?

Thank you in advance!

EDIT: After reading other guys additionally get the message OUT OF MEMORY in case of low java heap space, I tried to increase it too. Now the patching succeeds.
