running SPP on linux

Dear all, 

 

While running hpsum for updating my servers I run into following problem: The engine shuts down while I'm using it (I manage to add one server at most but it seems to crash after a few moments)

 

I tried running it on a headless server (so only the engine running) or in a VM on my laptop but in both cases the service stops after a few moments. 

I don't get a real error message, it just states the following:

 

# ./hpsum
Copying hpsum files to /tmp/hpsum-08-07-14-10-05-45
hpsum_service_x86 started successfully on port 63001, ssl port 63002 and ftp port disabled.
Launching default web browser to HP SUM login URL:
http://localhost:63001/index.html?session_id=s581416235714&lang=en
Recommended minimum browsers: Firefox 17, Chrome 24
Waiting for engine to be shutdown...

#

 

Is there a log file I can check or something? 

 

Thanks in advance

 

Hannes

Re: running SPP on linux

This looks pretty normal so far:

(taken from my windows system)

 

hpsum_service_x64.exe started successfully on port 63001, ssl port 63002 and ftp
 port disabled.
Launching default web browser to HP SUM login URL:
    http://localhost:63001/index.html?session_id=s78148357821&lang=en
    Recommended minimum browsers: Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 18, Chrome 24
Waiting for engine to be shutdown...

 

Point your browser to an address like this:

 

http://localhost:63001/index.html

 

The message "Waiting for engine to be shutdown..." is normal.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: running SPP on linux

But when the engine has shut down, I'm unable to work with the gui. The process just stops working while I am still using it.

Hello,

here are some tips.

 

first: reboot or kill the running hpsum processes. delete /tmp/localhpsum.

-run hpsum as su

-be sure to assign an ip to your network cards or hpsum won't work

-temp disable firewall or run hpsum --open-firewall

-there are some scripts in the same folder as hpsum that can help: "clean-cache" , "gatherlogs"

Re: running SPP on linux

These tips didn't help but I was able to pinpoint the problem a bit more precise.

 

When I start the application, the browser opens. When I don't click the 'baseline library' the process keeps running. When I do click it, I get a progress bar (which is more filled when I wait longer) and the application crashes.

 

It seems the display of the progressbar causes the application to stop.
