    JBoss service and ip bind on windows 2008

    nadia ebrahim Newbie

      HI all.
      I have setup a jboss server with esb deployed to it.
      My problem is that when I try to make it a window's service,it doesn't work.
      I run the below service install and it says it has succesfully added service.
      When I look at services on the windows machine ,I don't see the service at all.
      This happens on windows 2008 and vista,I took the same jboss folder and did the service install on a windows 2000 machine and it worked.

      I also have another issur that when I run the run-b hostname ,jboss starts and can see th screen from that computer (http:\\aittest.woolworths.co.za:8080)
      When I do this from any other computer it doesn't work..Think this is a network issue..Not sure where to start.
      Thanks
      Nadia

          When you run service.bat to install the service, did you open the command prompt as an administrator? Vista, Win 7 and Server 2008 are pickier about who can do things such as create new services. And being logged in with an admin account is not good enough.

          Also, which version of JBoss AS? The jbosssvs.exe file is corrupt in the 5.0.x versions (it is correct in 5.1.0).

          When you use "-b XXX", you must use the URL http://XXX to access the app server. You can also use the IP address for XXX in the URL. You can also use any other host name that maps to that same IP address.
