How long should Cygwin shell start command run?

My PPM database was recently upgraded and I got a new license file and I stopped the server to install. Now when I restart it using the sh kStart.sh command, it runs forever. If I exit out of it, my application completely shuts down, yet its been going for over an hour now. Is it normal for it to run this long? How can I exit cygwin without killing my application? We are using cygwin in a Windows environment.

Re: How long should Cygwin shell start command run?

Good morning,

I understand that you did not change anithing in PPM (same version, same server, ...) and you just upgraded the Oracle version.
If yes, why did you get a new license file?

Which version of PPM are you using?

Did you update the Oracle connection string/users/passwords by kConfig?

I experienced that sometimes a JAVA Process is not really stopped (in PPM 7.5 and PPM 8) when stopping PPM server: try killing Java processes by Task Manager.

What happens if you start PPM by Windows services?

At the very end I can just suggest you to check the LOG file

I hope it's useful (please, let me know)

I had to get a new license file because we needed more license for our app. The db was upgraded and refreshed from another environment, so I had to run the kConfig to chnage the password. We're on version 7.5.

Hi All,

Does you upgrade/update your Java version? It seems that you have problems with your java, not with your cygwin.

I'm attaching a sh.exe try it(keeping your original version)

Kind Regards,

Hi Sametria Holt,

Remember that PPM 7.5 with SP 6 or newer needs java 1.6 and for that you have to re-install the server of PPM with the new java home...
You have to go to the /bin directory:
and execute "ksvc remove-all" then
execute "ksvc install-all"


Kind regards,
Daniel

Did u check server logs on machine? May be those logs can throw some light on problem.
