    Execute Script/Batch file: stuck

    Hi,

    I'm trying to wrap a RMI server application as service, which will check the RMI server exit code and restart it under certain conditions.

    Everything works perfect if I setup the service through command line. When I tried it through Execute Script/Batch file in IA 2008, it also worked perfect on Solaris. But it got stuck on Red Hat Enterprise 5.6.

    The script I tried to run via IA is as follows:

    if [ `uname | grep -i Linux` > /dev/null ]; then
    /bin/bash -c "service swdagent start&"
    else
    svcadm enable swdagent
    fi

    The service setup script is like the following:

    # /etc/init.d/ script
    start_agent()
    {
    errCode=1
    while [ "$errCode" -ne 0 ]; do
    $JAVA_EXEC $J_OPTS com.swd.rmi.SwdAgent agent_status
    if [ "$?" -ne 0 ]; then
    echo "The swd agent is already running."
    errCode=0
    echo
    else
    echo "Starting swd agent"
    nohup \
    $JAVA_EXEC $J_OPTS com.swd.rmi.SwdAgent > /dev/null 2>&1
    errCode=$?
    if [ "$errCode" -eq 5 ]; then
    errCode=0
    echo "Failed to bind RMI Service"
    fi
    fi
    done
    }


    # main
    ......
    case "$1" in
    start)
    echo
    start_agent &
    echo
    ;;
    .......

    The behavior is same if I enable service through java Runtime.exec() - worked perfect on Solaris and stuck on RHEL.

    Any expert there can shed some light n how to get around this?

    Thanks a lot,
    Ben

    Question

    Have you tried to manually run the script on RH5.6, of course, with the IA variables replaced?

    It works fine if run from command line.

    If installanywhere users java Runtime to execute the script, then I believe it's the java Runtime issue. When I run the script directly through java Rumtime, it's also stuck.

    Using java Runtime to execute script/batch file is OS-dependent, that explains why it succeeded on Soalris, but stuck on Linux.

    Question

    This script, do you run it verbatim (as is) inside InstallAnywhere?
