Issue: After successfully installing a signed certificate from a public Certificate Authority, httpd service could not start: "Starting Apache ? Broken Pipe"
Fact: eHealth 6.2 on Solaris
Fact: eHealth 6.0
Fact: eHealth 6.1
Sometimes nhManageSsl is closing its pipe prematurely
Put Apache in debug mode (Change $NH_HOME/web/httpd/conf/httpd.conf line "LogLevel warn" to "LogLevel debug")
The following entries show in the httpd-errors, show nhManageSsl binary could not receive the pass-phrase.
[info] Init: Seeding PRNG with 0 bytes of entropy
[info] Loading certificate & private key of SSL-aware server
[info] Init: Creating pass phrase dialog pipe child ' /usr/eHealth/web/webCfg/nhManageSsl -decrypt'
[info] Init: Requesting pass phrase via piped dialog
[debug] ssl_engine_pphrase.c(475): encrypted RSA private key - pass phrase requested
Problem Ticket: PRD00045343
The issue documented above has been resolved in the following release(s):
This problem will be fixed in eHealth 6.2.2
The workaround is to create a shell wrapper for nhManageSsl, renaming the app itself to nhiManageSsl. This prevents nhManageSsl from closing pipe too early:
To test the result:
It should start normally.
