    Jboss 7 shutdown, controller not available from command line


      I have a bit of a specific issue with a recent upgrade to jboss that maybe somebody else has come across.


      Connecting from windows to the linux machine it is possible to execute a shutdown via jconsole however from the command line on the linux machine where the jboss instance is running, I get the persistent error of The controller is not available at xxxxxx:49999 java.net.ConnectException: WFLYPRT0053: Could not connect to remote


      No configuration has changed in regards to ports, the only difference being an upgrade from jboss 6.4.19 to jboss 7.1


      Here is some info on the current setup:

      openjdk version "1.8.0_212"

      OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_212-b04)

      OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.212-b04)

      To be clear, there is no issue when starting an instance, or even killing an instance. But when issuing the shutdown command it can not connect to the controller.


      To go even further the controller is established and listening on the correct ports but when trying to test with wget it will establish a connection and just hang when trying to get the contents of the page. The same is seen for tests on the controller via a browser, the page will be in a consistent state of loading.


      As mentioned previously the instance can be shutdown via jconsole on windows or killed on the linux machine with a kill command on the process id. But from the linux machine it is not possible to connect to the running instance to issue a shutdown command.

      This seems like an incredibly specific error but if anybody has some insight as to what the underlying cause could be it would be more than appreciated!
