    Jboss crashing linux box on shutdown

    Richard Rose Newbie

      I have installed JBoss on a remote linux blade with two AMD Athlon(tm) MP 2600+ cpus.

      JBoss starts fine using jboss_init_redhat.sh start, against the default configuration.

      When jboss_init_redhat.sh stop is run, the java process takes 99% cpu and is unkillable.

      Its so bad that the linux shutdown -r cmd locks up and requires a manual reboot (an issue for remote server).

      Using kill -3 on the jboss_init_redhat.sh stop java process completely locks the blade and requires a manual reset.

      If instead of running the shutdown script you use the JMX console the server may be shutdown normally.

      However as the JMX console is not secure I dont want to use it remotely.

      Has anyone else seen this ? ... everything runs fine under XP.

      Has anyone any idea why the JMX console works but the stop cmd doesnt ?

      Anyone have any idea how I can safely shutdown jboss without manual intervention ?
