    JBoss 4.0.5 GA Bind Issues

    mward Newbie

      Hello

       

      I have installed JBoss 4.0.5 GA on a Win 2003 64 bit server

       

      I have made a copy of the Default server instance and named it FileNet, when i start it from the command line using

       

      run.bat -c FileNet

       

      is is starting fine and i have teh url working as expected.

       

      However, when i attempt to bind it to the Hostname or IP Address and run either of the following commands

       

      run.bat -c FileNet -b <SERVER-HOSTNAME>

       

      run.bat -c FileNet -b <IP-ADDRESS>

       

      The JBoss is starting but the JBoss URL is not displaying the JBoss page

       

      Have i missed some steps in the configuration of the bind process ?

       

      Rgs Michael.

          What do you mean by "JBoss URL"? I hope you mean: http://<server-hostname>:8080. Note that when you bind to a specific address (other than localhost) that http://localhost:8080 will not work.

           

          Also, look at the console log, a few lines before the "started in xxx seconds" messages you will see something like this that tells you the exact URL that the server bound to:

            Michael's reply to me follows:

             

            Hello Peter

             

            I  hope you dont mind me contacting you in this manner, some things is up  with the reply on my IE - as i cannot reply to your post...

             

            I wanted to provide you with more information

             

            Yes, when i write JBoss URL - I mean the  http://localhost:8080 wiil not work
            I have just ran two tests -
            Test 1 -
            run.bat -c FileNet -b 0.0.0.0
            in the boot.log is the following error - this command did not create a server.log

            I guess that i have missed something is the setup ?

             

            Rgs Michael.

             

            Regarding:

             

            some things is up  with the reply on my IE - as i cannot reply to your pos

             

            IE often has trouble with this forum. Switch to a real brwoser such as Firefox or Chrome.

             

            Regarding test 1:

             

            Test 1 -
            run.bat -c FileNet -b 0.0.0.0
            in the boot.log is the following error - this command did not create a server.log

             

             

            I'm sorry, but I don't see any error in that output, only DEBUG and INFO entries. As to the server.log not being created, that all depends on the settings in server/FileNet/conf/log4j.xml

             

            Regarding test 2:

             

            run.bat -c FileNet -b EULUP8AE01-D
            . . .

            18:08:36,050 ERROR [WebServer] Invalid host address specified: EULUP8AE01-1
            java.net.UnknownHostException: EULUP8AE01-1

             

            This means that your network configuration is incorrect. The hostname EULUP8AE01-D must map to an IP address on the host machine, either via DNS or via the etc/hosts file. Apparently, EULUP8AE01-D maps to an IP address which maps to EULUP8AE01-1 which doesn't map to any IP address. You have a mess here which needs to be straightened out first. I am more used to fixing this kind of mess in Linux (where it is usually limited to a misconfigured /etc/hosts file) than in Windows, but tools such as ping, ipconfig and nslookup should help.

              And if Firefox and Chrome too don't like the forum editor then see if this thread has a solution http://community.jboss.org/thread/157743

                I have now downloaded the FireFox and still the Reply Button is not working, latest is

                I have updated the Hosts file in the AE Server with the IP-Address of the AE server

                ======================

                In the Hosts file i did the entry

                Should i do something more ?

                Regarding:

                 

                I have now downloaded the FireFox and still the Reply Button is not working,

                Are you signed into the forum? Is JavaScript enabled?

                 

                I was scratching my head when I saw this error:

                 

                08:57:17,848 ERROR [WebServer] Invalid host address specified:  ind

                 

                This means that somewhere the host name of 'ind' was used, which usually means a network config error. But then I looked more closely at the command you entered:

                 

                run.bat -c FileNet -bind EULUP8AE01-D

                 

                Apparently, it took the 'ind' after '-b' as the hostname.

                 

                As for the other errors, I never bother with additonal errors until the first one goes away - way too often the extra errors are a side-effect of the first error.

                  Hi Peter


                   


                  Yes, your correct ... I have now corrected that command


                   


                  I also did find that the IP Address were incorrectly configured... Which i have got corrected...


                   


                  However is not displaying the URL ->   http://eulup8ae01-d:8080/


                   


                  So now, i have Test the following


                  run.bat -c FileNet -b EULUP8AE01-D


                   


                  and  in the boot.log i see no errors, i find the following which looks to me  that it is binding in the correct manner - However i still do get the http://eulup8ae01-d:8080/ URL to resolve correctly

                  Also it is not creating a server.log


                  So i have got further but its now yet ok


                  Rgs Michael.

                  The last line in the console log indicates that logging is switching from bootstrap logging (controlled by a log4j.properties file in run.jar) to app server logging (controlled by server/FileNet/conf/log4j.xml). If there is no more console log output, and there is no server log, then check the log4j.xml file because apparently it is configured to not generate any logs.
                  Try using netstat or better yet tcpview from sysinternals to see what port the app server is bound to.
                  Oh, and it would be great if you found a system where you could actually reply to the forum posts yourself.

                    Hello Peter

                     

                    I am testing this from my private laptop back at the apartment..

                     

                    And this is clearly working fine here, so work much have some blocker in operation..

                      Hello Peter


                       


                      I  am really sorry for communicating in this manner for this post, I have  tried Chrome and Firefox but none are working correct - I think they  must have a something disabled here - i did enable the Java scripts and  unblock the Block Pop-Up but still fails to allow me to Reply.. I just  get a small "Reply to Peter" box at the bottom but i cannot write in it,  and when clicking on the Advanced Editor, nothing happens.


                       


                      Regardint the log4j file


                       


                      I swapped in the original the log4j with all the default settings and ran the command


                      run.bat -c FileNet -b EULUP8AE01-D


                       


                      Now its filling up the server.log with details, but the only error i could see is near the bottom of the log file

                      But still not resolving the URL  http://eulup8ae01-d:8080/

                       

                      The first set of log messages you posted (the ones that are JMS-related) are expected. JBossMQ will attempt to create the JMS tables in the database each time it startes up. Of course, that works fine only the first time, al the other times the tables are already there and you get the DEBUG log entries. Since they are just debug, you can ignore them.

                       

                      As far as not being able to access the URL, where are you entering the URL? But I suspect that you have it correct that there are some firewall or other restrictions in your work netwrok that is preventing the connection.
