broken after upgrade to 7.6

Recommended Posts

I upgraded my linux client from 7.5 to 7.6 and now the client terminates immediately after starting. retropds.log is never created. All I have for debugging is this in the retroclient.log:


1219682225: ConnStartListen: starting thread ConnStartListen for
1219682225: iplud: bound to address
1219682225: ipludAddMembership: adding membership for
1219682231: IPNSRegister(1): registered: "my.fqdn.com"/"f4a22e51b44d2af6"
1219682231: ConnStartListen: starting thread ConnStartListen for
1219682231: connListener: bind() failed with error 98
Retrospect Client Terminated.


The upgrade process was done with via rpm -e retroclient to uninstall the old version and then rpm -ivh Linux_Client-7_6_100.rpm to install the new one. The service seems to start correctly, but terminates within 10 secs of starting it. If I do a status immediately after starting the service it shows


[root@mail2 ~]# service rcl status
Server "my.fqdn.com":
       Version 7.6.100
       back up according to normal schedule
       currently on
       readonly is off
       exclude is off
       0 connections, 0 authenticated


I have since downgraded by uninstalling the 7.6 rpm and installing the old 7.5 rpm and now that one has the same problem with it terminating with the same bind error.


any ideas on how to trouble shoot this?

do a netstat on the interface to see who/what is listening on port 497. Sounds like the client is unable to open the retrospect port. Perhaps another (older) retrospect client is running, listening on port 497 so that the bind to port 497 doesn't succeed.

thanks, it seems that there is a process listening on 497 but I will have to investigate as to why:

[root@mail2 Retrospect]# netstat -npl | grep 497
tcp        0      0   *                   LISTEN      319/mysqld
udp   109140      0       *                               319/mysqld

The process is from my Zimbra install.

[root@mail2 Retrospect]# ps aux | grep mysqld
zimbra     319  0.1  9.7 388296 101088 ?       Sl   Aug24   1:55 /opt/zimbra/mysql/libexec/mysqld --defaults-file=/opt/zimbra/conf/my.cnf --basedir=/opt/zimbra/mysql --datadir=/opt/zimbra/db/data --pid-file=/opt/zimbra/db/mysql.pid --skip-external-locking --port=7306 --socket=/opt/zimbra/db/mysql.sock --external-locking


Thanks for the help, I can probably get it from here.
