Description dsteigne 2010-07-16 14:04:29 UTC
Description of problem:
Using the documentation at http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/JBoss_ON/2.3/html/Installation_Guide/Installation_Guide-JON_Agent_Installation-Preparing_the_Agent.html#Installation_Guide-Preparing_the_Agent-Start_the_Agent, we have successfully installed the jon agent on a RHEL 5.5 x64 bit system. We followed recommendations for automatic startup by creating a symlink in /etc/init.d/rhq-agent-wrapper.sh -> $AGENT_HOME/bin/rhq-agent-wrapper.sh. We used chkconfig to add the script to startup. All of that works well and a unit test of "sudo service rhq-agent-wrapper.sh stop" and "sudo service rhq-agent-wrapper.sh stop" works fine.

However, if you reboot the system completely, you will see that rhq-agent-wrapper.sh has an error near line 126 and it will not start. The reason is that it is executing from /etc/rc3.d/ instead of /etc/init.d/ and it assumes that its launch location is $AGENT_HOME/bin/.

Observe the error:

Starting rhq-agent-wrapper.sh: /etc/rc3.d/S93rhq-agent-wrapper.sh: line 126: cd: ../init.d: No such file or directory
Starting RHQ Agent...

The problem is that the script tries to account for being linked from $AGENT_HOME/bin to /etc/init.d/ but it does not account for being, by nature, linked to /etc/rc3.d/.
