I am trying to restore a Ciscoworks LMS 3.2 configuration from backup. However, I keep getting this error during the RME restore.
This is from the backup log...

What does the message "Unable to start: Essentials DM" mean and how do I get the restore to complete successfully?
Solved! Go to Solution.
What is the exact name of the service as it appears in the Service mmc? I do not see an entry for Windows Remote Services.
Are there other services that could conflict?
I have uploaded a screen capture of the services mmc.
The logs have not been written to today. With Daemon Manager running, run "pdreg -l EssentialsDM" and post the output. Also, post the syslog.log.
I have tried four different generations of backup. Each fails in the same manner.
I also reinstalled the entire application from scratch, did a basic configuration and enabled SSL to make sure the web page would come up.
However, as soon as I did the restore from backup, after the fourth attempt, I decided to see if Ciscoworks would come up. It did not Apache would not start again.
In LMS 3.2 is a selective restore possible. Something is wrong with the certificate or SSL configuration. I would be happy if I could just get RME back and the users and user defined groups I have created.
Here is the other piece of information you needed. I had to disable SSL to get Ciscoworks to come up.
F:\CSCOpx\MDC\Apache>pdreg -l EssentialsDM
Process = EssentialsDM
Path = F:\CSCOpx\bin\cwjava.exe
Flags = -cw F:\CSCOpx -cw:jre lib/jre -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryE
rror -cp:p MDC/tomcat/webapps/rme/WEB-INF/classes,MDC/tomcat/webapps/rme/WEB-INF
Startup = Started automatically at boot.
Dependencies = EssMonitor DCRServer RMEDbEngine
I have a question. If a backup to LMS is created and SSL is not enabled while you take the backup and you try and restore the backup with SSL enabled is this going to hose things up?
We have four LMS servers in our environment. They have identical OS (Windows Server 2003 R2), hardware (HP DL385 G1) and LMS versions.
What started this was a user noticed I had not enable HTTPS after the upgrade to LMS 3.2. I enabled HTTPS on the four servers, since it is a simple change in Common Services.
On two of the servers, the switchover to HTTPS was seamless and without issues. On the other two, as we dicussed in the other thread, Apache does not start if HTTPS (SSL) is enabled.
This is frustrating. So I am going to escalate this with Advanced Services and see if I can get this issue resolved.
I am reasonably certain I can reproduce the issue with a fresh install. The only issue is a reinstall is time consuming, as it takes almost 8 hours for me to reconfigure to a fresh install.
I solved the issue with the backup. When you remove LMS from the server it removes casuser also. The new casuser that is regenerated when the installation is a new entity when it comes to permissions.
So the new casuser did not have any permissions to the backup folder.
Once I figured this out and gave casuser permissions to the backup folder the restore completed successfully.
You are correct, this does not explain the SSL issue and yes it is still occurring.
Nael collected some data with process monitor. He said the two of you would analyze it for ideas.
I will wait to hear from Nael.
I am seeing some registry keys pertaining to crypto that may be relevant to the problem. You should compare the keys under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Cryptography to those of a working server.
I'm joining this thread as I'm having the same sort of issue.
However, I am running LMS 3.2 on Solaris 10.
I intalled 3.2 and tried to restore from a backup I took on the same server after installation (a successfull backup).
Here is the relevant bit from restorebackup.log:
Check two things...
1. Make sure that casuser has permissions to access the directory the backup is stored in.
2. If Apache is not starting up in https mode, then comment out the SSLCertificateChainFile line in NMSROOT/MDC/Apache/conf/httpd.conf, and Apache should start in SSL mode.
Let me know if this works for you.
