You want information about common startup issues of ON Command CCM related services, and want to know how to troubleshoot these issues.
ON Command CCM Services depend on each other to a great extent. The only services not dependent on other ON Command CCM services are
ccmft.exe and the
bootp.exe. All other services depend on either the ON Command CCM RMI service, the database, or the ON Command CCM Portmapper service. Therefore the ccmrmi service, the database, and the ccmpm service are usually started first.
If you use the standard
ccm.bat file to manually start or stop your ON Command CCM services, then the sequence is already preset.
To manually start the services, use the following sequence:
CCM RMI Registry
Adaptive Server Anywhere (ccmasa)
CCM Database service
CCM Portmapper service
CCM Password service
CCM Windows Agent Support service
CCM Notification service
CCM File Transfer service
CCM Pre-OS service
Start all other Services that are optional after these.
Some services can only be started in console mode for further troubleshooting. The Services able to be run in console mode are:
CCM Database Services
CCM Locator Services
CCM RMI Services
To start any of these services, the higher level service on which these services depend on must be started prior to using the console started services. Use the above mentioned list to determine if the service depends on either the RMI, the database,the Portmapper, or all of them.
To start any of the console services in console mode use the
-s console switch at then end of your command line. An alternate switch for some versions is
-console omitting the '
s' entirely. Here is an example command for starting the ccmrmi service in console mode:
Starting ccmrmi in console mode rather than as a service delivers more debug output.
Occasionally Windows is unable to start services because a higher dependency service is not started, but the dependency was not explicitly mentioned. For example, all ON Command CCM Services depend on an existing Network service not explicitly mentioned. A service can also terminate unwanted for multiple reasons that are usually logged in the systems event log. If you experience occasional startup or terminate problems, modify the ON Command CCM Services recovery options.
To modify the ON Command CCM Services recovery options
Open the Service Control Manager.
Right-click on the service name, and then click Properties.
On the Recovery tab, under "Select the computer's response if this service fails" check all three failure options to restart the service after 1 minute.
Set the Reset fail count option to 2 days.
Perform steps 2 through 4 for all ON Command CCM Services.
If you experience permanent startup problems, try running the following command:
...ccm\config\utilities\setperm -f ccm.apf
You may have a problem where the user system is unable to launch due to improper access rights. Setperm resets the credentials to the way that they were set during the initial installation. If this does not help, try reinstalling the CCM services.
If ON Command CCM services are frequently terminated unexpectedly, set the service debug level to the maximum value for further troubleshooting (this is usually 5). To set service debug levels, modify the service configuration file that resides in the same folder as the service itself. The file has the service executable name with a
.cfg extension. All modified settings require a service restart to become active.The log file is written to the
ccm\config\log folder, and has the service executable name with the
