openSSO version 9.5.2 installation from response file

Hello, all

I've been trying to install openSSO v _9.5.2_RC1 using a response file with openDS(ldap) backend and have

a problem for which I can't seem to find a real answer, so any tip would be helpful. I'm running CentOS

release 6.3 in a virtualbox with 1,5 GB of RAM. I was able to install openDS and start it but I'm not sure

if its configured correctly. I'm attaching a script that I used for auto installation. (openDS-


If I ask lsof here is what I get:
$ lsof -i -n -P | grep 4444
java      6658    ldap   75u  IPv6  37916      0t0  TCP *:4444 (LISTEN) -- which is ok, right :)
If I ask ps about openDS here is what I get:
$ psg opends

org.opends.server.extensions.ConfigFileHandler --configFile /u02/OpenDS-2.2.1/config/config.ldif
Here are couple of more information that might help:

The problem is that if I try to use this command as tomcat user it will give only one error message:

[tomcat@cent01 work]$ java -jar ~/work/opensso/tools/configurator.jar -f 

Configuration failed!
[tomcat@cent01 work]$
- which is very helpful :(( I'm attaching this file as well. (test.testdomain.example.config.txt)

Here is the output from the tomcat log:

Nov 2, 2012 1:33:42 PM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapperValve invoke

If I try to use status command then here is what I get:
[user1@cent01 openDS]$ sudo service opends status

Specify OpenDS LDAP connection parameters

The best thing is that if I go through web wizard and follow that web-wizard it will work without any

problems but I don't want to do it in that way. I would like to have automated with a script from a

command line :)

Thanks for any kind of tip or direction !!!

    Neither OpenSSO nor CentOS are Oracle products and although you're using VirtualBox somewhere within your kit, your question has no place in these OTN forums.

    Oracle may have briefly acquired OpenSSO when they purchased Sun Microsystems but has since thrown it out to the open development community. See:

    Additionally, you cross-posted your inquiry to at least one other forum site and failed to mention that fact:
    That is poor forum etiquette.
    So, to avoid people duplicating efforts to assist by saying the same thing that you might have already been told elsewhere, this thread is locked.
