Description Hasan Alp İNAN 2013-06-24 12:50:00 UTC

I installed JBoss application server inside a jail. I edited standalone.xml file for Jail IP. When I tried to start JBoss 7.2; startup script can't start JBoss. 

When I tried 

daemon -u www /usr/local/jboss-as-7.2.0.Final/bin/standalone.sh


./standalone.sh (user root)

commands JBoss start successfully.

I also checked to file permissions

chown -R www:www /usr/local/jboss-as-7.2.0.Final

but nothing change. 

In /etc/rc.conf file 


How-To-Repeat: service jboss72 start
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/jboss72 start
Comment 1 yerenkow 2013-06-24 12:53:25 UTC
it's being investigated (some shell changes), you can edit rc script and

  daemon -u ${%%APP_SHORTNAME%%_user} ${JBOSS_HOME}/bin/standalone.sh
${%%APP_SHORTNAME%%_logging} >> ${%%APP_SHORTNAME%%_logdir}/boot.log 2>>


daemon -u ${%%APP_SHORTNAME%%_user} ${JBOSS_HOME}/bin/standalone.sh >>
${%%APP_SHORTNAME%%_logdir}/stdout.log 2>>
${%%APP_SHORTNAME%%_logdir}/stderr.log >>
${%%APP_SHORTNAME%%_logdir}/boot.log 2>>

hi Alexander,

this is not enough

the script has more problems: 

1) if i call the generate startup code i get the error message 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/jboss72 start

daemon -u www /usr/local/jboss-as-7.2.0.Final/bin/standalone.sh  >> /var/log/jboss72/stdout.log 2>> /var/log/jboss72/stderr.log >> /var/log/jboss72/boot.log 2>> /var/log/jboss72/boot.log
Ambiguous output redirect.

if i remove the >> /var/log/jboss72/boot.log 2>> /var/log/jboss72/boot.log
its working...

2) the jboss startup attributes are also missing jboss_args  they are
declared but not sent to standalone.sh

-b -bmanagement -c standalone-full.xml as example
daemon -u ${jboss72_user} ${JBOSS_HOME}/bin/standalone.sh ${jboss72_args} >> ${jboss72_logdir}/stdout.log 2>> ${jboss72_logdir}/stderr.log

results in 
daemon -u www /usr/local/jboss-as-7.2.0.Final/bin/standalone.sh  -b -bmanagement -c standalone-full.xml  >> /var/log/jboss72/stdout.log 2>> /var/log/jboss72/stderr.log 

is same like direct call from terminal
/usr/local/jboss-as-7.2.0.Final/bin/standalone.sh -b -bmanagement -c standalone.xml
and it will start; 

jboss72_jvm_opts=" -server -Xms128m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m"
>>> not working !!   jboss72_args=" -b -bmanagement -c standalone-full.xml "  # standalone.xml standalone-full.xml

it will not work, because params are not given to standalone.sh

3) please add at the end & from the script not to block the terminal ; also for stopping

4) cool would be to be definable which i want to start standalone.sh / domain.sh 

5) cool would be also to get info after installation that its needed to execute 
      /usr/local/jboss-as-7.2.0.Final/bin/add-user.sh for administration access
