LMS 3.1 processes unable to start

I have had LMS 3.1 installed for more than one year - and it has been working as expected.

After a reboot of the server (Windows 2003 R2) the solution stops working.

When browsing the syslog.log file i see messages like:

Apr 20 08:28:28 100: <30>   dmgt[7668]: 3001(I):Using port: tcp/42340.
Apr 20 08:28:28 100: <30>   dmgt[7668]: 3007(I):Started application(Tomcat) "SERVICE " pid=4612.
Apr 20 08:28:34 100: <28>   dmgt[7668]: 2095(W):Internal Error: The daemon manager cannot run application TomcatMonitor.

This message appears for each application that tries to start up. I'm enclosing a copy of the content in the syslog.log file.

I have tried to install the sw on another server (new), and applying the license to this. The same errors occur here.

Does anyone have a clue on what's going on here ?

  • Cisco Employee,

Why was this server rebooted, was anything changed? Post a screenshot of your Windows Services. Make sure you are not running any anti-virus on-access scanning on CSCOpx.

I'm running ACS v4.2 on the same server and did a reboot in order to resolve a lock on one of the configuration pages there.

The enclosed jpeg contains a snapshot of the relevant part of services.

How much free disk space do you have ? And you will want to have ACS and LMS running on two separate servers as this is not a recommended setup.

Get the pdshow > pdshow.txt if possible . If not get the NMSROOT/MDC/tomcat/logs/stdout.log files .

1. Get me the file size of the CSCOpx\lib\jre\bin\java.exe

2. Get the NameServer.log from CSCOpx\log directory.

3. Do a "pdreg -l NameServer" and get me the output.

4. And do a "netstat -an > netstat.txt"

Get me the above outputs so I can examine further and ensure you have full admin rights when starting processes.

I strongly recommend that you move ACS to a different server as well.

The netstat output indicates that the NameServer is not listening on the port 42342 and due ACS and LMS running on the same server, they are competing for similar resources.

My suggestion is that you install LMS on its own server and ACS on a seprate server.  And upgrade to LMS 3.2 as well from http://www.cisco.com/survey/exit.html?http://cisco.mediuscorp.com/lms_w

I think it's an idea to upgrade to 3.2.

I did though install the sw on a fresh server earlier today (as mentioned in my first post), without ACS and got the same error messages.

So i do not think that only an install of 3.1 will fix this issue.
