Issue/Introduction

During a Spectrum installation of a release version or upgrade, you may receive an error indicating some applications are still running, which may cause installer to fail. The error requests to close the applications to continue. The installer will not proceed without stopping these applications first.

Cause

The Installer normally shuts down the processes in order to perform the upgrade. In some cases, some processes may not have shut down.  

Environment

Spectrum 9.xSpectrum 10.XOS Platform Independent

Resolution

The error will indicate which processes are still running. The list of processes may vary.

To ensure all Spectrum processes are shut down, verify the following

-      SpectroSERVER is STOPPED

o    Stop SS from Spectrum Control Panel.

o    Or from <SPECROOT>/bin run ./stopSS.pl

-      Processd is STOPPED

o    Stop from <SPECROOT>/lib/SDPM directory.

o    Run ./processd.pl stop

If stopping these two services does not solve the issue, then check for the running processes.

In Windows, check Task Manager


In Linux / Bash shell, run ps -f | grep <processname>

Kill the processes

Note: In Windows Task Manager, some processes such as nameserv.exe may show up as a SPECTRUM Javawrap process. You can stop these as well.

Note: DO NOT shutdown sradmin.exe – the installer requires this to run.
