ESM Console Crash : java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError : com.arcsight.ui
A few Windows 7 boxes are experiencing a problem where the ArcSight ESM console crashes during the log in process. The full error log is attached.
Looks like java.lang.ExceptionInInitializeError in com.arcsight.ui components. Like the process of loading the UI is crashing the application.
Any ideas on how to fix this? It is machine specific and affects all users that log into the machine. Other machines with the same system image are able to launch the ArcSight console successfully.
It seems your Console version is 126.96.36.19915.0. The below platforms are supported:
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 (SP2) 32 -bit
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 (SP2) 64-bit Microsoft
Windows Server 2008 SP2 64-bit
Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista SP2 64-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista SP2 32-bit
Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3 32-bit
Are these your Windows 7 boxes 64-bit or 32-bit?
That is what we ended up trying. I deleted all of the ArcSight related files on the system disk and in user profiles. All .ast files, etc. Removed the console and reinstalled from an executable freshly downloaded from the HP Software site.
I am waiting to see if the problem reoccurs, in the past it always came back within a few days after the ArcSight console was reinstalled. I'll keep you posted.
The problem eventually came up again. We think it may have something to do with roaming profiles in the environment because the systems this happens on are utilized by users with roaming profiles while all of the other systems have never had this problem and do not get used with roaming profiles. We are going to disable roaming profiles entirely and see if that is the root cause.
