Is this Windows or Solaris?

It is on Windows Server 2003, Standart Edition

I've read your comments about similar posted cases and none of them works for me. There isn't any anti-virus software on the LMS server

What are the Service startup parameter for all of your services?

Sorry, but do you ask me for "startup type" and "log on as" from the Windows Services display, or you ask me for the ouput of the pdshow command?

are you connecting from a client?

If yes try to login from a browser on the LMS server and report the result.

Neither is what I wanted. I wanted the Windows Service startup parameters from the Services control panel.

I am a substitute for Velin about this problem, because he is at leave and we need to solve this problem.

Here is some more information: There are no startup parameters for the CiscoWorks services in the Services Control Panel.

I am attaching some exports from this Control Panel (taken from mmc and sc utilities), but I was not able to include the startup parameters there. If you need any other info or you have some suggestions, please let me know.

Best Wishes, Kliment Karchanov

This looks fine. Please post the NMSROOT/MDC/tomcat/logs/stdout.log and the NMSROOT/MDC/etc/regdaemon.xml. If you are not comfortable posting the regdaemon.xml to an open forum, please open a TAC service request with these files.

I have opened a TAC Service Request: 609861987

If you still need any information, let me know

I have a customer that is getting this same problem. Have you solved the problem after the TAC case openning?


Velin Georgiev Tue, 07/14/2009 - 21:16
User Badges:

Yes the TAC engineers solved that problem and here it is how:

1. Stop the daemons:

C:\>net stop crmdmgtd

2. delete CSCOpx/MDC/tomcat/webapps/cwportal/db/portal.* , ( I prefer to move them to another directory out of NMSROOT;)

3. Then copy CSCOpx/MDc/tomcat/webapps/cwportal/db/orig/*

to CSCOpx/MDC/tomcat/webapps/cwportal/db,

4. verify permissions of the files on that folder

5. Restart the daemons:

C:\>net start crmdmgtd

I hope it works for you too, and because i'm curious, please post the result here

Great, the procedure has worked fine.

The only addition is that the Daemon Manager did not started and was needed to run resetCasuser to make it run.

Now the Portal Page is oppening fine.

Many thanks

Hi Velin,

I'm having similar problems with our client wherein he cannot login to the Ciscsoworks homepage. We noticed that the Tomcat service is not starting. Whenever we try forcing it by clicking the Start button, an error would pop-up. Even if the start-up type is Automatic or Manual, both will have the same result.

I just want to ask if the procedure you posted above will resolve the issue regarding the Tomcat service?

I didn't have problems with starting the Tomcat server, so i can't answer your question for sure. What is logged in Tomcat's log files? You can always try the procedure i've described in the previous post, just make a backup before that.
