    Discussion: Unable to use JConsole to remotely connect to a JBoss 7 server running in domain mode

    Arturo Pena Newbie

      Goal:

      Use JConsole (that came w/ JBoss 7.2.0) on my PC to remotely connect to a JBoss server configured in domain mode using port offsets.

       

      Configuration:

      3 server groups have been defined using port offsets of 100, 300 and 500.

       

      The domain.xml jmx subsystem has been modified by enabling the remoting-connector:

      <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:jmx:1.2">

       

                       <expose-resolved-model/>

                       <expose-expression-model/>

                      <remoting-connector use-management-endpoint="false"/>

                  </subsystem>

       

      The add-user script has been ran to add an user to the application realm

       

      Issue:

      Getting authentication errors when using the JBoss JConsole from my PC:

       

      Here is what I am passing on the JConsole:

      service:jmx:remoting-jmx://[Unix physical server name]:4547

       

      For the user name and password fields I am entering the user name and password that I added to the Application Realm via the add-user script.

       

      Errors:

      Upon hitting connect button: I get "Secured connection failed. Retry insecurely.." 

      I hit the Insecure connection button, I get "Connection Failed: Retry?

      The JConsole output shows the following error: ERROR: JBREM000200: Remote connection failed: javax.security.sasl.SaslException: Authentication Failed..."

       

      Any assistance on this issue is appreciated.

          Enabling the remoting-connector on the domain.xml is correct.

          <remoting-connector use-management-endpoint="false"/>

          Adding the user to the ApplicationRealm via the add-user.sh is correct.

          On my case the issue was that the application-users.properties that got updated from the add-user.sh script
          was the properties file located inside the default domain/configuration folder that ships w/ jboss 7.  We have a copy of the domain folder located
          on the same jboss container which we call master (e.g master/domain/configuration) Once I copied the properties file (that got updated) from default domain/configuration folder to the the master/domain/configuration, it worked.

          I am connecting as described in previous posts:

          service:jmx:remoting-jmx://[IP or dns name]:4447 (or 4447 plus port offset).  I am passing the credentials used during the add-user.sh script process.
