Description Stefan Negrea 2012-04-24 22:46:21 EDT
Description of problem:
The agent service cannot create the PID file during startup due to inssuficient file permissions to write to /var/run. The agent is started under a non-root username (created during the installation process).

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install JON Agent RPM
2. Try to start the service
Actual results:
The agent gets started but cannot create the PID file and is reporting an error.

Expected results:
The agent gets started and the PID file gets created.

Additional info:
The solution is to create a subfolder under /var/run that has write permissions for the agent user.

The problem applies issue applies to both EC2 and non-EC2 agent RPMs.
Comment 1 Stefan Negrea 2012-04-27 13:38:00 EDT
Created bug 817100 to track EC2 specific work.
Comment 2 Stefan Negrea 2012-04-27 13:42:34 EDT
This has now been resolved for the non-EC2 JON agent RPM. The solution only required changes to the RPM template spec file.

The pid files will be stored in /var/run/jboss-on/agent. JON agent user has full access to the folder.
Comment 3 Armine Hovsepyan 2012-07-23 07:17:47 EDT

Agent starts correctly but the pid file is not being created under /var/run/jboss-on/agent.

Please get screenshot attached.attached

Comment 6 Stefan Negrea 2012-07-25 09:33:49 EDT
Applied a couple of fixes to separate regular and ec2 pid folders. Please retest this in conjunction with regular RPMs (non-EC2).
Comment 7 Armine Hovsepyan 2012-07-26 04:43:11 EDT
Hi Stefan,

PID still is not being created for ec2. for regular jon service is is being created correctly.
Comment 8 Armine Hovsepyan 2012-07-26 05:27:53 EDT
