No apache or admin portals after fresh SP4 overlay install

fresh install on a simple PE 2850 w/ Perc4e raid created manually (since
the dell assistant cd install doesn't like to look for / accept mla
licenses in an existing tree and install then hangs...)

apache2.nlm loads, but does not show in console or respond to browser requests.

have not tried a port scan but can only telnet to ftp port, all other
common ports (httpd, imanager, remote manager) fail to connect.

am i missing something obvious here or what???

should i just backrev to sp3?? sp4 looks like it needs some work!

Tell us more about your configuration. Is the "apache2 loads" after
reboot? What products did you install.

Well, you should be using SP4a now, but I don't think you've run into the
issues that 4a fixes in 4. Given that a whole lot of people have
installed 4 and 4a successfully (including myself), it is likely to be
something to do with your specific configuration that is giving you
problems here.

IIRC, most of the PE2850 messages I've seen on these forums have been
related to the Perc driver.

More specifically, AP2WEBUP gives [OK] (along with the autoloaded APRLIB
nlm) but AP2WEBDN gives "Module APACHE2 is NOT loaded"..

From NWConfig:
AP2WEB 2.0.54
APACHE2 2.0.54
BNS 1.1.0
C1RPTING 1.3.6
CONSOLE1 1.3.6
EDIR 87.3.7
EMBOX 87.3.0
iMANAGER 2.5.0
iMONITOR 2.3.0
LDAP 87.3.0
MYSQL 4.0.24
NDS8 87.3.7
NICI 2.6.7
NICIU0 2.6.7
NLS 5.0.2
NMAS 2.3.9
NSN 2.0.0
NTLS 1.8.3
NWTFP 1.0.12
OES 1.0.1
OPENWBEM 3.1.0
Pattern 1.0.0
Perl 5.8.4
PERVASIV 7.9.4
PHP 5.0.4
PKIS 2.7.6
PORTAL 4.0.0
SAS 1.7.5
SMS 1.1.3
SPACK 6.5.4
Tomcat 4.1.31

Its a fairly vanilla install.. - SP3 on it worked just fine.. (Yes, the
drives were zeroed between installs..)

Unless theres an obvious magical switch I must have missed I'll just try
zeroing out the drives again and loading up a fresh SP4a and if that bombs,
stepping back to SP3 again.

Thanks,
Norm

Okay, sound like a plan. Maybe one of the apache-savvy people will chime
in, too!

Re: No apache or admin portals after fresh SP4 overlay install

Still no go w/ SP4a.. - My best guess is that its an NDS/eDir issue w/ the
existing tree not being fully extended/updated or something, but thats just
grasping at straws. (I'm fairly confident the tree is NOT fully up to date
and that the only two servers in the tree may even be at slightly different
revs as it is..)

Anyway, guess I'll see how things go by doing an SP3 install and verifying
operation again there and then patching up to SP4a.

Thanks for looking though!

And this passes an NDS health check?

Good point. - Yep, health checks look good. But yeah, the two existing
servers ARE at slightly different vers, one is at NDS 10551.29 the other at
10550.98.. - Not too much of a biggie, so I agree, I don't think thats the
issue here.. (The only "marginal" I get stems from having only two servers
in the rep ring..)

But heres the really funny thing, after backrev'ing to SP3 again its now
producing the same (lack of) response from all Apache modules.

<sigh>

So now my suspicions are focused on the controllers zeroing (drive "clear"
process.) Though in the past, faults there (uncleared drives) have given
REALLY wacky server responses and I'm not really seeing that so much.
(Though one client may have imploded somehow after connecting through this
server when it was rebuilt with SP4 the first time and the problem was
first detected. - I forgot disable logins there, doh!)

So yeah, guess I'll go chase Dhell around, thanks for looking again.

Thanks! - I think that wish actually did the trick for me!

Or, maybe it could have been that I needed to delete a bunch of leftover
objects from the initial install out of the NDS tree. (Like the "Apache
Group" and "apchadmn-Registry" objects...)
