    Multiple jboss instances with remote access

    Gustavo Fava Newbie



      I need to start 2 instances of jboss on my machine, one of them accesible from other pc's.


      Using the multiple IP approach, i start one instance with -b and the other with -b


      This is because i want that the second instance to be accesible from other pc's.


      But i get the following error:


      ERROR [org.jboss.kernel.plugins.dependency.AbstractKernelController] (main) Error installing to Start: name=jboss:service=WebService state=Create mode=Manual requiredState=Installedjava.lang.Exception: Port 8083 already in use.


      Followed by a big stacktrace.


      Anyone knows why does it happen and what would be the solution to have more than one instance one of which is accesible from other machines ?


      Thanks a lot,Gustavo.

          When you use the IP address, JBoss AS connects to all IP address on the machine, including localhost. Therefore, you will run into port conflicts. Try using "-b xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"  instead, where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the machine. Note that when you do that you will not have localhost access to that server.


          The only other possibility is to use different port numbers.

            Hi Peter, thanks for your help.

            I didn't know that with al IPs are used on the machine.

            Now is clear to me that there would be conflicts.


            I followed your suggestion and assigned the IP of the machine to the jboss instance that would be accessed remotely, and to the other instance.


            Now everything works fine !


            Thanks a lot.
