    Sun Java System Web Proxy Server (4.0.2) - manage server will not start

    Kim Ming Yap

      In short here's the scenario and main problem.   
      a. Proxy admin server start - no problem
      b. Create a new manage server (no proxying - just testing it) using different port. It just won't start. No logs produced either.

      Here's the server.xml for the new manage server.

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

          <LOG file="E:/Sun/ProxyServer40/proxy-server3/logs/errors" loglevel="finest"/>
      </SERVER>

      Nothing seems to be wrong with this. The XML format follows the specified DTD.   
      Would appreciate any help.   
      Thanks.

          HI,

           

          Having no logs is really odd. It should create an error log on startup. That said it's extremely old (4.0.2).   As this is a new install I would suggest installing the latest version 4.0.22. You can upgrade in place.

           

          Are you starting using the instance "start" script?

           

          Also I would check the Windows event logs for any issues.

           

          Which version off Windows is this?

           

          regards,

            Thanks for your reply. Yes. This is really odd.

            Anyway to make the whole story short, i uninstall this proxy server 4.0.2 on this server (say server1) and try to reinstall a new proxy 4.0.13 but having odd problem (i have administration rights)

            Here it goes.

            a. CMD java -version is 1.4.2_XX

            b. Double click the proxy 4.0.13 setup.exe - nothing happen.

            c. CMD setup --javahome c:\jdk1.6_XX - nothing happen

             

            Here retrying.

            a. Login to server2 and map conection to server1

            b. Double click the proxy 4.0.13 setup.exe on server1 (while on server2) - setup.exe runs. This proves the proxy setup.exe on server1 is good.

            c. Make a copy of proxy 4.0.13 on server2

            d. Login to server1 and map connection to server2

            e. Double click the proxy 4.0.13 setup.exe on server2 (while on server1) - setup.exe did not run.

            Both servers are on the same domain and i'm using same ID to access both servers

            Again, no logs on the windows events (security, application, system)

            This is becoming mind a boggling mystery.

            Any idea what's going on?

            Thanks.

              Hi,

               

              1. What platform are you trying to install on?

               

              2. Why are you using 4.0.13 and not 4.0.22?

               

              2 " Login to server2 and map conection to server1" Could you explain what this means? Are you using RDP or something to display the

              GUI?

               

              3. c "Make a copy" Copy of what? Are you copying the install program or the installation? You can't move installation between machines.

               

              Did the installer run on Server 1 and install the Product?

               

              regards,
