Linux Question

Unable to start Glassfish 3.1 even though port not occupied

I'm having trouble starting

Glassfish 3.1
on a newly setup Debian "Squeeze" server. This is a testing server that has been setup and the
Glassfish
installation was copied from a working server to this other server.

I tried running:

# ./asadmin start-domain
There is a process already using the admin port 4848 -- it probably is another instance of a GlassFish server.
Command start-domain failed.


I also tried restarting the domain because I thought maybe it was running:

# ./asadmin restart-domain
Server is not running, will attempt to start it...
There is a process already using the admin port 4848 -- it probably is another instance of a GlassFish server.
Command restart-domain failed.


At this point I confirmed that
Glassfish
was not running so I checked to see if port 4848 was occupied:

# netstat -aon | grep 4848


which returned nothing.

I have suspicion that
Glassfish
was copied from the source server while
Glassfish
was still running. Maybe there is some sort of pid file or lock file that was copied over as well.

Any suggestions on how to get
Glassfish
to start?

Edit

Here's the
server.log
file from
domain1
after executing the
asadmin start-domain
command:

Answer

First of all check the $HOSTNAME and the etc/hosts file configuration , not try to find a problem with ps aux or netstat -aon .

> echo $HOSTNAME

response > server (or etc)

> cat /etc/hosts

in response if you cannot see "$HOSTNAME" after 127.0.0.1 then add it end of the string . Try again to execute the start-domain command.
