    jboss multiple installation

    xxx yyy Newbie

      Hi.. for the multiple instance jboss concept.. do i need to install one more jboss.. or it is just copy-paste of one more directory inside SERVER folder of the jboss? urgent case.. thanks !!

          The latter is the best approach - make a copy of an existing directory in the server folder. (On my system, I never use 'all' or 'default', I always make a copy and run the resulting configuration. I have a dozen configurations.)

            hey thanks.. i did all the changes of the conf files.. but still when i start the second instance, i get port number in use for all changed ports.. also when i start the jboss, it shows deployment failed for the second instance.

              To change the port numbers, see http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=ConfigurePorts

              Also, look at the file docs/examples.binding-manager/sample-bindings.xml for instructions on setting up the port binding manager.

              Another possibility is to assign each server a different IP address. This works only if you have multiple nICs or you NIC supports multiple iP addresses (and you have set up multiple IP addresses). To bind a server to a specific IP address, use the -b command line option. For example:

              run -b 192.168.0.100 -c server01
              run -b 192.168.0.101 -c server02

                Hi Peter,

                sorry for capturing this thread, but I have difficulties in starting multiple servers with multiple IP-addresses - as described

                here http://community.jboss.org/wiki/ConfiguringMultipleJBossInstancesOnOnemachine.

                For the first time after installation or java update it "mostly" works fine, but soon enough the JBoss hangs on deployment

                after Catalina startup. The final entries in logfile just say:

                ...

                No noticeable processor or HD activity. Any idea ?

                 

                I'm using Jboss 4.2.0 on Windows XP, Java 1.5 or 1.6

                 

                Thanks, Matthias

                  Are you using EAP 4.2.0 or AS 4.2.0? If AS 4.2.0, what changes did you make to jboss-log4j.xml? Have you checked the server.log to see what is going on in there? Have you tried accessing theh ome page via http://<ip-addr>:8080?

                   

                  I ask these questions because this is usually the last line one sees when the console log is turned off for the app server (the console log lines that appeared so far are from the bootstrap code which uses a separate log configuration).

                    I'm using AS 4.2.0.

                    I set the log-level for org.jboss to DEBUG and found some more lines in server.log

                    The request on http://ip-addr:8080 does neither return nor display any error message, the browser simply returns to the last shown page.

                     

                    In netstat -b I can see that port 8080 is opened, but already in use - by the jboss itself !

                      I just got the tip to prefix the connector port in

                      deploy\jboss-web.deployer\server.xml

                      with the IP-address in use,

                      and it succeeded, deployment and startup went well ....

                      But this is one further configuration step I tried to avoid by using multiple IP-addresses and the -b start option

                        Interesting. I've never had to do that, but then I haven't used APR in combination with running on multiple IP addresses before. Perhaps this is an APR-required change. Here is the line that shows that APR is being used:

                        By the way, so that 6 months down the line when someone runs across this post, to save them from having to ask the question, could you post the exact config change you made in server.xml?

                          I rejoiced to son .

                           

                          The AS startet well - apparently.

                          But access via web to jboss, jmx-console or my application fails (site not available).

                          Port 8080 is not in use according to netstat.

                           

                          When shuting down I found the error message:

                            Actually, all of the wiki pages you and I mentioned assume that APR is not installed.

                             

                            How did you install APR? Via JBoss Native? Or some other way?

                              I wasn't jet aware that I'm using APR - nor what its function is.

                              I simply extracted the downloaded jboss-4.2.0.GA.zip and used the default server installation for my application.

                              The APR configuration seems to be part of the jboss-web.deployer package.

                               

                              So my questions remains: how can I use Jboss without APR - if this is the problem of my installation with multiple IP-addresses.

                                APR is not part of JBoss AS. However, you might have installed it as part of another product, such as Tomcat. What OS are you using?

                                 

                                See if this recent discussion of someone else's experience with unintentionally using APR helps: http://community.jboss.org/message/563470#563470

                                  Hi Peter, and thank you so far for your answers.

                                   

                                  The quoted discussion didn't help me due to the different OS - I'm using Windows Server 2003.

                                   

                                  While struggling with APR I once copied tc-native.dll into the c:\windows directory.

                                  Now I removed it and still get an APR-message:

                                  .. and it still hangs.

                                  Port 8080 is connected to another local port used by the java.exe with the same pid.

                                  Shutdown does not work, I have to kill the process.

                                    Note that this APR message states that the APR library was not found and not loaded, And yes, placing tc-native.dll (which is the APR DLL) into c:\windows (which is in your PATH) is sufficient to cause JBoss AS to load it.

                                     

                                    Could you post the full console log, including the command you entered?

                                     

                                    Also, are you still trying to run multiple instances? And is this problem related to the first or second instance? If the problem is related to the second instance, also post the full console log, including the command entered, for the first instance.
