"OpenDS Cannot be started" during Configuration.
By webshesh on Aug 25, 2008
During Configuration of OpenSSO after deployment of the WAR file, there are times when the Custom Configuration will fail with the error "Failed to start OpenDS instance".
This usually happens when you attempt the configuration for the second time without removing the earlier configuration settings.
To resolve this problem:
- Undeploy the OpenSSO WAR file
- Remove ( rm -r) the OpenSSO Config directory containing the OpenSSO and the OpenDS folders
- Re-deploy the WAR file
- Run the Custom Configuration
Configuration should go through fine using all default settings.
