OpsCenter cannot start

Steps to take when OpsCenter cannot start up due to improper directory permissions.


The location of the startup.log file depends on the type of installation:
  • Package installations: /var/log/opscenter/startup.log
  • Tarball installations: install_location/opscenterd/log/startup.log

OpsCenter uses the system temporary directory to load and execute dynamic class files. You might see an error message in the startup.log indicating that OpsCenter cannot read/write/execute from that directory. If permissions on the directory cannot be changed, you can use a JVM argument to change the temporary directory that OpsCenter uses. Refer to the JVM tuning section for more details.
