Issue/Introduction

Start the Registry, and it reports it is up at first using the entry ./RegistryService status.

After a few minutes, it reports that it is stopped.

In the registry.log I see this error:

The Enterprise Dashboard Server at 'http://${installer:enterpriseDashboardHost}:1506' could not be contacted, and no current activation was found in the local activation cache for this registry.

Cause

In the lisa.properties file this is defined:

devtest.enterprisedashboard.host=${installer:enterpriseDashboardHost} 
devtest.enterprisedashboard.port=${installer:enterpriseDashboardPort} 
devtest.enterprisedashboard.https.enabled=false 

The Registry is looking for an Enterprise Dashboard running on URL:

'http://${installer:enterpriseDashboardHost}:1506' 

The variable ${installer:enterpriseDashboardHost} is not being recognized.

For some reason on this install on the Linux machine it is putting those values instead of 

devtest.enterprisedashboard.host=localhost
devtest.enterprisedashboard.port=port
devtest.enterprisedashboard.https.enabled=false 

This has been reported before.

Environment

Release:
Component: ITKOTF

Resolution

Since ${installer:enterpriseDashboardHost} and ${installer:enterpriseDashboardPort} had not been defined, the Registry will not start.

The workaround is to update the lisa.properties file to:

devtest.enterprisedashboard.host=localhost
devtest.enterprisedashboard.port=1506

If the Registry had been running on a different machine then localhost should reflect the hostname of where the Enterprise Dashboard is running.
