Error on start GSM


In my linux machine I setted up the setenv.sh script adding the following lines:


but when I tried to start GSM the console shows the following error:

Sep 9, 2008 2:46:53 PM WARNING [org.jini.rio.tools.webster]: Bind Address Failure on port [0] Caused by: java.net.BindException: Cannot assign requested address Sep 9, 2008 2:46:53 PM SEVERE [com.gigaspaces.start]: Error while booting system - java.net.BindException: Cannot assign requested address at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.socketBind(Native Method) at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.bind(PlainSocketImpl.java:359) at java.net.ServerSocket.bind(ServerSocket.java:319) at java.net.ServerSocket.<init>(ServerSocket.java:185) at org.jini.rio.tools.webster.Webster.initialize(Webster.java:245) at org.jini.rio.tools.webster.Webster.<init>(Webster.java:131) at com.gigaspaces.start.SystemConfig.getWebster(SystemConfig.java:569) at com.gigaspaces.start.SystemBoot.main(SystemBoot.java:222)

If I remove the nic_addr line it work but my gs-ui or my application does not find my cluster, please help me

Looks like you are trying to start 2 or more GSM's at the same time. Try starting the GSM's with some delay.

When u start the GSM. GSM tries to create a webster(web server) for serving pu's(deploy folder) from GSM machine to its containers. Basically what might have happen is GSM1 got the port from BootUtil(would have taken some time to start the webster) mean while GSM2 came and asked for the port and it might have got the same port number as it not yet occupied.

Hi venkat gunnu,

I tryed to start 1 GSM the problem is that when I configure the NIC_ADDR the GSM throws that exception, if I remove the NIC_ADDR configuration the set env.sh have his default wich is hostname command, this configure the lookup with the name of my linux host but the with the ip this is not what I want, I don't know if I am clear in the explanation

I tried running with 2 ethernet cards on linux and setting the NIC_ADDR all went well. If possible can you print your ifconfig into to forum.
