screenshot of weird error message
I was not able to install the DV6 on Solaris 11. It fails to start the server (It outputs failed to start server after 11 attempts and doesn't finish.) After thta it tries to configure the server anyway and weird error messages pops up. Please see the attached screenshot.
I see this behavior not only with the graphical installer, but also with the headless installer (completely automated).
Note that zip distribution works and I can start the server.
Using Java 1.7.0_40

This was occuring because neither PATH nor JAVA_HOME environment variables were set. At least one of these must be set, or
# Setup the JVM
if [ "x$JAVA" = "x" ]; then
if [ "x$JAVA_HOME" != "x" ]; then
This snippet within standalone.sh or domain.sh will result in a command that is not executable in the environment. This apparently fails without any kind of error message that ProcessBuilder can see, and thus is not logged in the installer.
I suggest to remove blocker flag as this is not a blocking bug.
