    Error while running jboss-5.0.0.CR2 "Socket bind failed:  In

    Amitoj Cheema Newbie

      Hi,
      I've just started out with jboss. I'm using jboss on Fedora 9, jdk1.6. Apparently the jboss doesn't boot up properly after running "run.sh".
      The server.log shows up the following error message:

      2008-09-28 20:58:02,415 ERROR [org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11AprProtocol] (main) Error starting endpoint
      java.lang.Exception: Socket bind failed: [22] Invalid argument

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

          Which CR2 package did you download? jboss-5.0.0.CR2.zip or jboss-5.0.0.CR2-jdk6.zip? Since you are using jdk 1.6 you need to download jboss-5.0.0.CR2-jdk6.zip.

          If that does not resolve the issue, what are the contents of your /etc/hosts file?

          Have you deployed any apps? Are you starting the 'all' or 'default' configuration? Are you running as root or as a user?

          The "Socket bind failed" error usually indicated a port conflict. But this is the first time I can recall seeing the "Invalid argument" detail message (it is usually reads "Address already in use"). In those cases this might help: http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/DebugBindException

          Or see http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&p=4121889

            I did some search on google and probably the reason for this "invalid argument" error was the ipv6 service is enabled on fedora9. But after disabling ipv6, I'm stuck with a different error "Address family not supported". I'm using jboss-5.0.0.CR2-jdk6.zip so thats probably not the issue.

            Here is the log:

              You should double-check that your /etc/hosts file does not have any IPv6 addresses.

                I just now checked my 32-bit Kubuntu 8.04 system - it has IPv6 installed and IPv6 addresses have been assigned. I can run CR2 with JDK 6 just fine. I haven't checked my 64-bit Kubuntu system as regards to IPv6, but I know I have run CR2 with JDK 6 successfully there also. Ditto for my Fedora 8 system at work.

                By the way, there is a JVM command line option to prefer the use of IPv4, and it is already set in conf.sh.

                  Hi.

                  I get the same problem with Jboss 5.0.0.GA/debian/sun-java-jdk-1.6.0_10

                  20:34:04,497 ERROR [Http11AprProtocol] Error initializing endpoint

                   at org.apache.tomcat.util.net.AprEndpoint.init(AprEndpoint.java:600)


                  I already removed all IPv6 adresses vom /etc/hosts and disabled IPv6 in the kernel. The Jboss run.sh script already adds the "-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true".

                  What else can I try to get rid of this startup error? Anybody out there already solved this problem?

                    I got the solution...

                    I had to remove the libtcnative-1 package from my linux installation - used by previous Jboss versions.
