I have the openfire service installed as a windows service and it runs just fine. However, pretty much everyday, the process is essentially hung. I cannot login via spark nor can I log into the web admin console. If I try to restart the Windows Service from the Services control panel, it sits for a long while trying to stop the service eventually giving up in vain. I then have to openthe task manager, kill the openfire-service.exe process and then start it again.
Then all is well again for another 6-8 hours.
If the spark client is logged in during this time, it remains apparently logged in but sending messages to anyone is comparable to praying for riches. The messages never get delivered to any other spark user in the same boat. Logging out of Spark yields a similar situation when the server process is dead. Spark simply hangs.
Let me know what logs might be pertinent and I can post those.
We run the openfire-service.exe on a Windows x86 2003 R2, 4Gb RAM server with MSSQL 2005 SP3 (sparately hosted) and LDAP (AD separately hosted) authentication. It’s also tied to Our Jive Employee SBS server (running on a Centos 5 box).
Help and thank you,
