    JBoss AS 7.1.1.Final fails to start

    handyman Newbie

      Running the JBOSS_HOME/bin/domain.bat it freezes on "[org.jboss.as] (MSC service thread 1-3) JBAS015899: JBoss AS 7.1.1.Final "Brontes" starting".

       

      I'm using Java - 1.6.0_32, 64-Bit and an OS - Microsoft Windows XP, Proffesional x64 Edition Version 2003 Service Pack 2

          What you mean by 'freezes'?

          The last output is that line, if you do nothing with the server there might no further logging.

          Is the server accessible with a browser using localhost:8080?

            The server wasn't accessible on localhost:8080.

             

            I said freezes because, I tried the domain script on a different machine again with a fresh new jboss installation and it continued after that step and it was accessible on localhost.

             

            Also running the standalone script didn't have the same problem (the server was accessible on localhost:8080) on the machine that had it with the domain script.

              Sounds strange.

              Could you attach logfiles, domain and host xml?

                I don't currently have access to that machine, but as soon as I do I will attach them

                 

                P.S. Actually I didn't change anything before the problem occurred.

                  I downloaded a fresh new installation of 7.1.1.Final Brontes and tried running the domain.bat. I'm attaching the log files, domain and host xml.

                    The logs look like that the JVM is crashed.

                    I suppose you did not change host/domain.xml right.

                     

                    Do you see any JVM crash files in the diretory where you start?

                    What if you start standalone.bat?

                    Could you try another JVM?

                    How your start command, console output lookslike?

                    Do you see the java processes still running?

                      Can you try with 32bit jvm?

                        I didn't change the host/domain.xml.

                         

                        I don't see any JVM crash files whether I run the domain or the standalone bat.

                         

                        I tried running the domain bat with Java - 1.6.0_32 and 1.7.0_04 - both 32 and 64 bit.

                         

                        Once the domain script's console reaches "JBoss AS 7.1.1.Final "Brontes" starting" there is a java process still running.

                          If the java process is still running

                          1)

                          add "-Djboss.boot.server.log.level=TRACE" to your start parameter

                          change the root-logger level of you stanalone/domain configuration to "TRACE"

                          maybe the logs can give you a hint.

                           

                          2)

                          Is there a posibility to monitor the process low-level, like truss on a UNIX system? This might give you a hint where the process is hanging

                            On Windows you can try the process monitor of sysinternals.

                            Search for "microsoft sysinternals process monitor"

                              There doesn't seem to be a deadlock, but maybe a thread is waiting on a monitor that is never notified or some other issue.

                              P.S. Changing the logging level to TRACE didn't give me much more information. Attaching the log files.

                                Reviewing the process through JConsole showed three RMI TCP Connection threads that blocked and waited many times and the process controller log changing accordingly. Attaching the log.
