RE: *ADMIN instance of HTTP server failing on startup



fixed

Jim,

I had similar issue a few months ago. After running a collector, IBM sent me these commands to run.
1. End the QHTTPSVR subsystem
2. Run the following CL commands:

QSYS/CALL PGM(QSYSDIR/QLWINSTALL)

QSYS/CALL PGM(QSYSDIR/QIWSIEX01) PARM(V7R1M0 V7R1M0)
QSYS/CALL PGM(QSYS/QLWIMIG) PARM(*AUTH *SS03)

QSYS/CALL PGM(QSYS/QLWIMIG) PARM(*AUTH *DG1)

3. Restart the HTTP Admin server with the following command:
STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN)

If you still fail to see Admin1 and Admin2 jobs start, then I'd like you to try the following:

(first end HTTPAdmin with ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN) )
1. CHGUSRPRF USRPRF(QLWISVR) SPCAUT(*ALLOBJ)
2. ADDENVVAR ENVVAR(QIBM_LWI_TRACE) VALUE(ALL) CCSID(*JOB) LEVEL(*SYS)
3. STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN)
4. WRKACTJOB JOB(ADMIN*) and verify if Admin1 and ADMIN2 start. If they do not, please re-gather the httpadmincollector data.

Looks like that /qibm/userdata/httpa/admin/conf directory still had some problems with *PUBLIC authority. Please do the following:

CHGAUT OBJ('/qibm/userdata/httpa/admin/conf') USER(*PUBLIC) DTAAUT(*RX) OBJAUT(*ALL) SUBTREE(*ALL)

Larry and Jack,

I have not already been through that '7 step plan' with IBM, and did not know it existed. So I will push IBM Service to in that direction.

I have to do this at a slower time for our web sites, as 30 minutes is a lot of $ in sales during the day.

I will update this thread when I get a result.

Thanks!!

Sounds like you need to follow the '7 step plan'
I see you have this in your error log:

Error 107 means the certificate has expired. Use DCM to assign a
different certificate to the application; for example,
QIBM_HTTP_SERVER_MY_SERVER. If the server instance that is failing to
start is the *ADMIN server, then temporarily set SSL to Disabled so
that you can use DCM on the *ADMIN server. Then use DCM to assign a
different certificate to the QIBM_HTTP_SERVER_ADMIN application and try setting SSL to Enable again.

Effectively it rebuilds the server instance. It involves shutting
down the QHTTPSVR subsystem so be prepared for that but all told
takes less than 30 minutes in most cases.

If you've already been through that plan then you are likely dealing
with something different but it sure sounds like one I've seen
several times both on i 6.1 and i 7.1 (The *ADMIN Server is the same
on both)

Greetings!

I am working with IBM service on an issue that we have not been
able to resolve, so I thought I would put his out on the Midrange
and WEB lists
to
see if anyone has had this issue and found a fix for it, or can
give me some guidance.

Hardware - 720 (E4C) partitioned 3 ways.
IBM i5/OS V7.1 with Technology Refresh 7 and the latest PTFs (as
of
Sunday,
March 23rd).

For the last month we have not been able to start the *ADMIN
instance
of
the HTTP server. When the command to start is used, the instance
starts
several jobs in the QHTTPSVR subsystem. Several of these jobs
take
LOTS
of
CPU time, borrowing from other partitions on the same 720 (E4C) box.

I receive an email from a job monitoring for instance failures
almost immediately. The monitor is looking for messges HTP8080,
HTP8081, and
HTP8082 to show up in the QSYSOPR message queue.

Then all but two of the started jobs ABEND with no joblog. The
two
left
running are ADMIN1 and ADMIN4.

I applied the latest PTFs, and that did not fix anything.

Yesterday I deleted licensed program 5770DG1, did an IPL,
reinstalled 5770DG1, applied the latest PTF group (#26) for
SF99368:IBM HTTP SERVER
FOR
I, then IPLed again.

Still have the same issue. I have looked for logs, and not found
any
with
useful debug information. JOBLOG are not being created, or have
less
than
useful information.

Anyone seen this or have some suggestions on where to go from here?

We need to use the Digital Certificate Manager to update some
certificates
that are expiring fairly soon. We are able to update HTTP
configuration
files for our existing web sites directly, but without the DCM we
are
not
able to export information to get a certificate updated.

I am open to any and all suggestions and/or questions.

Blessings!
