OpsCenter cannot start up

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

startup.log

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/execute dynamic class files. You may 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. Please refer to the JVM Tuning section for more details.
