We are having problem when shutting down our Windows 2003 server the JBOSS service doesn't appear to 'die' and the shutdown process hangs leaving the machine in a state where it must be power cycled.
This is our (dedicated) Production Server. We are also running Windows 2003 and the same version of JBOSS on our Development systems (which are VMWARE) and are not having the problem.
We are seeing port 1099 conflict issues in the JBOSS logs before this happens.
This other item may or may not be related! But we've been having problems with this Production Server crashing/rebooting at times too. To date, we have been replacing hardware to fix this problem but we are now not 100% sure it's a hardware problem. Again - this may or may not have anything to do with the JBOSS problem.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
Port 1099 is used to locate the MBeanServerConnection, which needs to be available to shut down the server using the shutdown script. Sending a kill signal (in UNIX) or hitting ctrl-c also initiates clean shutdown.
Crashing or rebooting ... It could be OS, JVM as well as hardware related. Update your JVM and OS.
