Problem:

ERR Server is already running under this configuration

Resolution:

Information in this Brief applies to:

  • Starbase Server 5.0
  • Solaris 7 and Solaris 8

Problem

Getting "Server is already running under this configuration"message when attempting to start your server configuration for Starbase Server5.0 for Solaris.

Solution

This usually means that the Starbase Server was killed in an abnormal way (i.e. killing the Starbase Server process using the "kill -9" Unixcommand.). When the server is killed this way, the configuration file does notget updated with the status of the server. The solution is to go to the Server"sinstallation directory (/opt/starbaseserver), and edit the file called"StarbaseServer.ini". Look for the server configuration you are usingand find the "PID" and "Status" fields for thatconfiguration. If the PID field has a value other than 0, and the Status fieldis "Running", then you have to delete these two entries, save the fileand restart the server.

PID=516
Status=Running

Once the above two entries are deleted, Starbase Server no longer thinks thatthe server is still running.
