on your appserver,
open a NSH shell
and do this
md5sum default/bladelogic.keystore _template/bladelogic.keystore job-02/bladelogic.keystore
This can be one of the problems, but I have not seen this with mutiple instances on the same machine.
I tried that already, no go.
So I tried spinning up a new Application Server on a Separate Machine (bsa-db).
I am getting the exact same behavior- the app server starts correctly (according to the logs) and it is running fine but the Infrastructure manager has an icon with a red X and the Application Server Diagnostics shows the exact same error as job-02.
"Error bsa-db is updating heartbeat but does not show as up, clocks are out of synch."
Do you have the correct bladelogic.keystore in all your instances?
Yes. I have done this 100 times with previous versions of BSA.
I am checking the clocks at the BIOS level to make sure they are right.
Can you do a blasadmin –a show data all?
Are the db configs correct ?
I seem to have solved this. Our Application Server VM didn't have sufficient processing power. I bumped it up and voila- all three App servers work perfectly.
Thanks for the support guys- as always.
