    "Cannot start post office" error

    M Le Newbie

      Hi everyone,

      I'm using the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 4.2.0 and fail to start jboss server due to the belowed error. What I don't understand is why the error message asked that "Are you sure you have given each node a unique node id during installation?". I did NOT give any node ID during the installation. In fact, all I did for installation was to unzip the soa-4.2.0.GA_CP01.zip file to a desired directory location. Once I unzipped it, I just go to <soa 4.2.0.GA_CP01 location>\jboss-as\bin to execute "run.bat" to start up the server and this belowed error is shown. I would greatly appreaciate if someone can tell me what to do to overcome this error. Thanks.

          You are trying to cluster JMS but you have not initialised the node id. What other nodes are in your cluster?

          • 2. Re:

            I did not try to cluster anything. Perhaps some other processes running on my computer are trying to do so? How can I find out which nodes are in my cluster? Which command should I used? Thanks.

            • 3. Re:

              Search in the server.log for the string "number of cluster members". There should be some information there that will help you track down the issue. While you might not have intended to cluster, perhaps one of your coworkers is also running SOA-P with the same ServerPeerID as you are using, or you forgot to kill a process somewhere?

                Oh, the server.log shows 2 for "number of cluster members". So obviously there's something wrong going on. Can you show me how to trace down this issue? which process should I look for to kill it if it happens that it's running that causes this problem or how can I start the jboss server using a unique server peer ID so it won't conflict with anyone else.

                Many many thanks.

                ML.

                  Use the standalone ESB Server to avoid clustering, unless you need EJB support which is only available in the fully-clustered, Java EE version which is what you are presently working with.

                    If you want to change the ServerPeerID, edit :

                    server/<configuration (all/default/production)>/deploy/jboss-messaging.sar/messaging-service.xml

                    and change ServerPeerID from 0 to something unique.

                    The other suggestion I'd make is that you track down the other SOA platform installation. The IP address of that cluster node should be in your server.log close to the "number of cluster members" statement.
