WCS6.0.132.0 Startup Error after Installation

I installed WCS6.0.132.0 on a Win2k3 SP2 Engine for the first time. But as I started the WCS service I got an error.

It seems that the health monitor would not start.

As the WCS6.0.132.0 would not work I installed WCS5.2.148.0 and it works now.

In the install log I found a non fatal error:

Custom Action: com.cisco.packaging.SystemRequirementsCheck

Status: ERROR

Additional Notes: ERROR - class com.cisco.packaging.SystemRequirementsCheck.install() runtime

Until now I have not found any bug IDs for WCS6.0.132.0.

I use Win2k3 SP2 English with German language and keyboard settings.

Looks like it is an Java-error.

Hi Dirk,

youre right it was a java error. I contacted our sales engineering team. I got following working solution.

I changed a section in file WCS6.0.132.0\bin\startServer.bat:

Old: set JAVA_OPTS=-server -Xms256m -Xmx%MAX_HEAP_SIZE% -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xrs -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -XX:HeapDumpPath=logs

New: set JAVA_OPTS=-server -Xms256m -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xrs -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -XX:HeapDumpPath=logs

Will try it in a minute.

Is working.

I just modified the statement:

old: set MAX_HEAP_SIZE=m

new: set MAX_HEAP_SIZE=1024m

It's working now.

Enjoy your day!

startServer.sh in /opt/WCSx.x/bin

export JAVA_OPTS="-server -Xms256m -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Djava.awt.hea

Ok thanks it works. The bin folder was hidden with the default installation.
