    Using Init-script to start JBoss AS7 from RHQ

    Stian Lund Expert


      in relation to my testing of using RHQ for JBoss operations, I want to try calling the init-script directly, since it gives us the most control of how the server starts and simplifies things a lot. So I have changed the Connection Settings for the appserver in RHQ:


      Start Script Path: /etc/init.d/jboss-server

      Start Script Env. Variables: PATH=/bin:/usr/bin

      Start Script Arguments: start


      This should be enough to call the init script and start the service I think.


      However, in RHQ this throws an exception and RHQ thinks the operation failed - even though the server is actually *started* - so the script works and returns a code of 0 but RHQ thinks it fail which is possibly a bug?


      Any ideas what might cause this?


      Below is the exception thrown in RHQ:


      java.lang.Exception: Start failed with error code 0:
      JBoss: Server jboss-server is STOPPED
      JBoss: Starting jboss-server

      EDIT: Found this:


      So, this is a known bug for JON - and chance this fix can also be made in RHQ possibly for the 4.6 release?
