openSSO version 9.5.2 installation from response file

by egulik1 - 11/2/12 1:27 PM

Hello, all

I've been trying to install openSSO v _9.5.2_RC1 using a response file with openDS(ldap) backend and have a problem for which I can't seem to find a real answer, so any tip would be helpful. I'm running CentOS release 6.3 in a virtualbox with 1,5 GB of RAM. I was able to install openDS and start it but I'm not sure if its configured correctly. I'm attaching a script that I used for auto installation. (openDS-autoinstall.txt)

If I ask lsof here is what I get:
[CODE]$ lsof -i -n -P | grep 4444
java 6658 ldap 75u IPv6 37916 0t0 TCP *:4444 (LISTEN) -- which is ok, right :)[/CODE]

If I ask ps about openDS here is what I get:
[CODE]$ psg opends
6658 pts/3 Sl 2:47 /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk- -server -

Dorg.opends.server.scriptName=start-ds org.opends.server.core.DirectoryServer --configClass

org.opends.server.extensions.ConfigFileHandler --configFile /u02/OpenDS-2.2.1/config/config.ldif[/CODE]

Here are couple of more information that might help:

The problem is that if I try to use this command as tomcat user it will give only one error message:

[CODE][tomcat@cent01 work]$ java -jar ~/work/opensso/tools/configurator.jar -f /home/tomcat/work/test.testdomain.example.config
Configuration failed!
[tomcat@cent01 work]$[/CODE]
- which is very helpful :(( I'm attaching this file as well. (test.testdomain.example.config.txt)

Here is the output from the tomcat log:

[CODE]Nov 2, 2012 1:33:42 PM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapperValve invoke

If I try to use status command then here is what I get:

[CODE][user1@cent01 openDS]$ sudo service opends status

>>>> Specify OpenDS LDAP connection parameters

Administrator user bind DN [cn=Directory Manager]:

Password for user 'cn=Directory Manager':

when launching the status command.

The best thing is that if I go through web wizard and follow that web-wizard it will work without any problems but I don't want to do it in that way. I would like to have automated with a script from a command line happy

Thanks for any kind of tip or direction !!!
