Does anyone have real problems getting Jive to start (running on Linux here).
I’'ve mentioned the startup problem I get before (http://www.jivesoftware.org/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=15121&tstart=0)
Anyway, my machine was down. Eventually got it going again (PSU issue), and started Jive. I have the init script in my /etc/init.d dir with appropriate links in the rc3.d and rc6.d dirs. However, although in the boot process Jive is reported to have started, it hasn’'t. Anyway, that might be a side issue.
The main problem is when I manually start Jive with the init script. On Mandrake the command is service start.
Anyway, Jive starts, in the info log it reports that ports 5222 & 5223 and conference have all started. That’'s about it. Normally if I can get the number of clients trying to connect below 20 then I get the log entry stating that Jive has finished starting (where it reports the version number). However, today the number of clients was very low (about 4 or 5), but Jive would not finish starting.
trying to connect with my client, in XML debug I see the server responds, requests authentication. My client sends authentication and that’'s about as far as you get.
I shutdown Jive and restarted it about 5 times before it eventually started. Each time I gave Jive about 10 or so minutes to start.
I know the hardware that Jive is running on is not the best, but once it is started I don’'t get any problems. There is about 200Mb RAM installed. The installation is via the RPM. There is no other Java installation on the machine. There are no JAVA env entries to put the installation of course.
Any ideas? I’‘ve got the server up now, and barring any unforseen events like power cuts and hardware failures I don’'t anticipate any other problems. Even my plugins are working and it quite happily handles around 80 or so clients.
