[edit] 6/22/2011 Incident Log

Cause: Unkown

Error(s):

On finding out that there were issues with the FMS the server was rebooted (soft) from console and these errors are thrown on startup:

  Starting HAL daemon: [FAILED]

  no listening sockets available, shutting down

Solution:

Upon rebooting the server and that having no effect it was brought to my attention that there may be an issue with the order in which the services/daemons on the server were started. I started and stopped the httpd and the fms service through /etc/init.d/ and finally was able to get both services to start correctly.

I had to first stop both the httpd and fms service and then start the httpd and then the fms daemons sequentially, example:

Working Code

sudo /etc/init.d/httpd stop
sudo /opt/adobe/fms/server stop
sudo /etc/init.d/httpd start
sudo /opt/adobe/fms/server start

Old Code

cd /etc/init.d/
./httpd stop
./fms stop
./httpd start
./fms start
