How to start CUP server

3004
3004 Member Posts: 204,171 Green Ribbon
I was able to install iFS withoout errors, but upon trying to upload the insurance exmaple upload_insapp.bat I get a CUP server not running error. How do I check/start the CUP server? also I was able to install the windows explorer client but I don't show any iFS drives and cannot seem to connect to my DB machine/ifs from windows explorer.
Thanks
Glenn Mckinlay

    In order to take advantage of the iFS, you must start the iFS servers. Go to your %ORACLE_HOME%\ifs\bin directory and invoke the ifsstart.bat command. This will start the protocol servers you selected in the iFS Configuration Assistant. You must provide valid iFS credentials to start the servers. This will also start the Java Web Server, if it was selected. Consult the iFS Installation Guide for more info.

    What do the log files say? Check IfsProtocols.log, IfsAgents.log, and the specific protocol server logs. They are all in the $ORACLE_HOME/ifs/log directory. Are there any errors?

    yes, thats what log says for cupserver timing out . In ifsprotocols.log:
    it says time expired with internal status of starting
    starting external process has timed out

    If you are both still having problems, please post information about your hardware environment:
    - NT/Solaris
    - Speed of processor
    - Memory and swap available

    It sounds like your servers may not meet the minimum requirements of IFS.

    i have the same problems. my computer has only 128 MB RAM(less than the minimum requirements). Is there any hope to run ifs
    (eventually)???

    I've increased the amount of virtual memory.
    Does it help?

    128 MB RAM is too small. Our minimum requirement is 500 MB RAM to run iFS server and clients. If you have a 256 MB RAM, you can selectively turn on only part of the protocol servers. 128 MB RAM is way too small.
