No gs> prompt

I just downloaded and installed gigaspace. From the output in my cmd window (see excerpt below) it seems to start ok but after startup I don't get a gs> prompt and the command window seems to be dead to any input except ctrl-c which evokes the "terminate batch job?" question. Is something wrong with my installation?

I am new to gigaspaces so I may be missing something obvious. Many thanks for your help.

Seems the CLI application hangs when trying to discover the lookup service.
Lets try explicitly to define the location of the lookup service rather having it discovered using multicast.

set the following before calling the gs.bat command or modify the setenv.bat to have the following:
set LOOKUPLOCATORS=yourIPmachine

It this won't solve the problem modify the:
to have:
com.gigaspaces.admin.cli.level = ALL
com.gigaspaces.lrmi.level = ALL

and run gs,bat again.
This will generate a file here:

Please post this file.

Hi Shay and Guy

Sorry I didn't see your responses until now. The issue was a severe case of pilot error :) and is resolved.
