Good morning to all...
Just a quick (sorta) question for the group this am....
I am having an odd problem here that unfortunately, I have seen before, but have not found a fix for and would like to get some input on. I am not able to connect to one of my servers using the Server Admin GUI app. It never times out or gives an error, but it never updates either. It just sits there with the "green dot" with the dots in it. I have seen this before on some other servers that a colleague manages, and the only thing we have found that fixes it, at least short term is the reboot the server. The interesting part is I am able to use the serveradmin command line app and get a status of the services that are working, so it seems that just the GUI part isn't connecting correctly. Things were of course working fine on Friday when I left... :-) I am not seeing anything out of the ordinary in the logs, and the server is working fine otherwise, but it would be nice to keep an eye on it and to be able to make changes to the services when needed.
Now the server details..... Mac Pro running 10.4.10 server, 2.66GHz CPUs, 2GB RAM. No software updates have been run since October 18th, when I installed this server. The other colleague that is having this same issue is running the same OS, but on and Intel XServe. If you need more info, or I forgot something, please just ask. Also, could you please cc me since I only get the daily digest of this list?? Thanks in advance for any help!
If no response from Server monitor remotely or locally and /or no response from Serveradmin tools, again remotely or locally
servermgrd may have fallen over
ps -guax | grep servermgrd
If no response then launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ com.apple.servermgrd.plist
If servermgrd is running then kill -HUP 15551 (where 15551 is PID of servermgrd)
Thanks for the quick reply. I will admit that I found it odd that the servermgrd process wasn't showing up, so I tried the launchctl command and it returned an error saying it was already running. So then when I run the ps command again, it says it is running, but still can't connect to the server via server admin locally or remotely. I tried to kill the process so I could restart it, but it won't die. See below for a clip from my terminal window.
dtc:~ root# ps -guax | grep servermgrd root 9891 0.0 -0.0 18060 264 p1 S+ 11:24AM 0:00.00 grep servermgrd root 48 0.0 -0.0 0 0 ?? Es 16Jan08 0:00.00 (servermgrd) dtc:~ root# kill -HUP 48 dtc:~ root# ps -guax | grep servermgrd root 9893 0.0 -0.0 27368 448 p1 S+ 11:24AM 0:00.00 grep servermgrd root 48 0.0 -0.0 0 0 ?? Es 16Jan08 0:00.00 (servermgrd) dtc:~ root#
I had the same problem recently and after trying the above, the only way I could re-establish the connectivity was to reboot the server. Sorry to not be more helpful.
Thanks again for your help, as well as the others that replied too!
