The installer does not set STAF_INSTANCE_NAME within the STAFEnv.sh script to its default value of 'STAF' during the install process. As a result the STAF process fails to launch and throws this error:
"Error during platform-specific initialization
Invalid value set for the STAF_INSTANCE_NAME environment variable. It cannot be blank."
The installation was performed using the zipped setup binary. All of the options were left to their default values including the STAF Instance Name which was left to its default value of 'STAF'.
The installation was performed on two different machines. One was an upgrade and the other a fresh installation. Both displayed installations the same behavior. The installation log on both machines showed that there was no value defined for the STAF_INSTANCE_NAME variable.
