(OBM GW) Unable to start MercuryAS, ERROR - Failed to retrieve server-state from JbossCl

Hello everyone!
I had a problem installing OBM GB from OBM_2018.11_for_Linux.
I have:
test1 - OBM GW
test2 - OBM DPS
OS - Centos 7
DB - PostgreSQL (embedded DBMS)

Installation Algorithm:
1. Install DPS
2. Install GW
3. Configure DPS
4. Configure GW
5. Run DPS
6. Start GW
Installation was carried out according to the manual and with default values for Distributed deployment.
The first 5 steps are completed without errors. When starting the GW (run_hpbsm restart) i see next error in jboss_admin.log:

[Nanny-WatchDog-2] (JbossCli.java:116) ERROR - Failed to retrieve server-state from JbossCli

com.hp.bsm.platform.jboss.admin.ConfigurationException: JBoss cli error: {
"outcome" => "failed",
"failure-description" => "System boot is in process; execution of remote management operations is not currently available"

Searching the forum led me to the next page:

The situation is similar, but the proposed solution for GW does not work for me. Any idea what to look for?

Installation was carried out according to the manual and with default values for Distributed deployment.

Here is another mistake on this issue:

Re: (OBM GW) Unable to start MercuryAS, ERROR - Failed to retrieve server-state from JbossCl

Just to verify configuration. you can try following:

  • make sure DPS is fully available using status page or cli.
  • make sure connectivity is working between both boxes.
  • start GW with a different command (not restart may be start or something else)
  • check on GW status homepage.
  • Make sure firewall and permissions are valid for both servers.

Re: (OBM GW) Unable to start MercuryAS, ERROR - Failed to retrieve server-state from JbossCl

Hi, Misaq!
I am glad that you are interested in my question.

  • bsmstatus.sh & opr-status.py & opr-support-utils.sh say RUNNING/STARTED for all components (on DPS)
  • ping & tracert & telnet connects to both sides
  • I tried stopall/start or reboot or reboot/sopall/start
  • I was only able to log into DPS:29000 , I can’t access GW from webinterface
  • Firewalld stop&disabled

My OBM GW in Windows was getting this error until I  turned-off Firewall in Settings.  It worked after turning it off and rebooting.  Make sure to the server is listening to port 443 if running secure https.

C:\Windows\system32>netstat -bona | find "443"
TCP [::]:443 [::]:0 LISTENING 1292
