    Unable to start BBSA Process Spawner Service

      Hi,

       

      While going over the server I noticed that on one of the BBSA service the “BladeLogic Process Spawner” is not started and when i tried to start it gets failed, but i can login into BBSA console without issue. Anyone please let me now why i can't start process spawner service and what is impact / use of this. Screen dump is attached.

       

      Thanks

      Raj

          You can’t attach images. You need to paste it into the body of your forum post.

            The process spawner is used to free up resources in the appserver process when running nsh scripts and extended objects.  it should be enabled and used in 8.1 and beyond.  Before 8.1 it is only of benefit on solaris appservers.

             

            What OS and version is your appserver?

             

            Can you look in the spawner.log and paste in the error/log ?

             

            Also – do you actually have it enabled (blasadmin –a show proc spawn)

                  Your spawner is not configured correctly.

                   

                  Can you run ‘blasadmin –s _spawner show data all’ and paste the output?

                   

                  It should match the result of ‘blasadmin show data all’

                  • 7. Re: Unable to start BBSA Process Spawner Service

                    It is not matching with blasadmin show data all output , and not running at all. Please let me know how to set _spawner equivalent to "blasadmin show data all"?

                      i'm not sure - that works for me.  why is it saying "now running against deployment default" when you are running it against the spawner instance ?

                       

                      what about just:

                      blasadmin -s _spawner

                      then

                      show data all

                          Its a long shot but I have had this problem. Is something else using one of the ports the BL is trying to use? Remember the many default communictaion ports etc that must be available.

                          • 11. Re: Unable to start BBSA Process Spawner Service

                            All Ports are available and BBS console is up and running , but without process spawner service

                              Bill Robinson

                              this has nothing to do w/ ports...

                               

                              is there a _spawner directory in the NSH/br/deployments directory on your appserver?

                              • 13. Re: Unable to start BBSA Process Spawner Service

                                Yes it is there , please find the screen dump.

                                  i'm not sure why the 'blasadmin -s _spawner' does not work.
