Received this from support. There is an issue with Fabric Manager when upgrading to 1.3 code
When updating IBM Fabric Manager v3.1 to v4.0 or Flex System
Manager v3.1 to v4.0, IBM Fabric Manager will not start. The
affected version 4.0.0083 and is fixed with version 4.0.0086.
Note: There is no indication or error message that IBM Fabric
Manager will not start. In order to determine if IBM
Fabric Manager (IFM) has not started, users need to
connect to the IFM server with a web browser or manually
check the process.
For FSM IFM service, users can confirm current IFM status from
FSM GUI menu.
[home] => [application] tab, and check 'IBM Fabric Manager'
status. If status is 'stopped' and not started though click
'start' link, then fsmfix_com.ibm.ofm.services_4.0.0086 needs
to be applied to resolve the issue.
