    Exception creating identity

    Trevor Merrill Newbie

      My JBoss AS 4.2.1 GA suddenly will not start. I am using it with Sun Java 1.6. It has been working in the past but I had to reboot my server and now it fails to start with the following error in the stack trace:

      21:31:20,637 WARN [BasicMBeanRegistry] javax.management.MBeanRegistrationException: preRegister() failed: [ObjectName='jboss.remoting:service=NetworkRegistry', Class=org.jboss.remoting.network.NetworkRegistry (org.jboss.remoting.network.NetworkRegistry@3749eb9f)]
      


      and further down:
      Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Exception creating identity: fattony: fattony
      


      I did a bit of searching on the forums and found some posts about problems with /etc/hosts but I have not touched mine here it is:

      127.0.0.1 localhost
      127.0.0.1 fattony
      


      I did notice that I can run my config as root:
      ./run.sh -c vencomm -b 127.0.0.1
      

      but not as my "jboss" user that I had setup. I tried deleting and re-adding the user, changing ownership on my $JBOSS_HOME directory. I haven't changed a thing, it just started happening. Any ideas? How is everyone else running JBoss as a non-root user. I had it working and now it is broken.

          First, it would help is you posted the full log message, including stack trace, for the error. The 'caused by' text is usually not sufficient.

          Second, try changing the localhost line in your /etc/hosts file to:

          127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.locadomain


          Also, the entry for fattony should probably have the IP address of the machine.

          Also, try running with JDK 1.5 (instead of 1.6 because 1.6 is not supported on JBossAS 4.2.x).

          Also, try setting the "-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true" JVM option on the command line.

          Finally, which Linux are you running (I'm guessing one of the Ubuntu variations...)

            It was working fine when I initially set it up. I am running Ubuntu 7.10. I didn't change anything, I just needed to reboot. I want JBoss to bind to the localhost. I don't even know why it is picking up the my hostname fattony. I really weird part is it works just fine when I run JBoss as root.

              Of the 6 items I mentioned, you replied to 2. What about the other 4?

              The last person who told me 'I didn't change anything, I just needed to reboot' later found that someone else had changed something. Even automatic updates from Ubuntu could change things. That is why I ran through a list of all the things I think could go wrong, and provided a list of things to try. Hence my request that you try (or reply to) the other 4 items.

                I am not familiar with setting command line options for jvm. How do I go about doing that?

                  Looks like your are already running with preferIPv4Stack set.

                  I tried running with various different setting in /etc/hosts, including yours (letter for letter). I did get the same stack trace, but with a slightly different message:

                  Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Exception creating identity: localhost.localdomain: localhost.localdomain

                  In a way I expected this (hence my earlier recommendation for adding 'localhost.localdomain' to the hosts file). However, I did this on Fedora 8. I have Ubuntu 7.11 at home, I'll have to try there.

                    At home running ubuntu 7.11, using your same /etc/hosts file, and not running as root. Works fine for me.

                    Just now noticed that you are running a 64-bit OS and JDK. I'm running 32 bit. I don't have a 64-bit OS available at this time.

                      I have also tried running directly from $JBOSS_HOME/bin/run.sh and I get the same error.

                      I have even tried using JBoss AS 4.2.2 with by configuration, I still get the same error. I bet some Ubuntu update did something but I am trying to recall if I ran updates on this server. I am the only sys admin so it had to have been me... if I could recall with some clarity that would be nice.

                          Thanks for the info. I'll have to add this to the list of things that can go wrong on Linux.
