Subject [jira] [Created] (GERONIMO-5987) The lock file in ActiveMQ is not referenced correctly
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 14:50:47 GMT
The lock file in ActiveMQ is not referenced correctly

                 Key: GERONIMO-5987
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: ActiveMQ
    Affects Versions: 3.0
         Environment: Linux x86, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga)
            Reporter: Russell E Glaue

I am testing with geronimo-tomcat7-javaee6-web-3.0-SNAPSHOT, geronimo-tomcat7-javaee6-web-3.0-20110523.171218-97

ActiveMQ is configured to run as "org.apache.geronimo.home.dir/var/activemq" , and does not
cooperate with multi-server configurations. This is the use of the ""
option. (see:

When wanting to run more than a single server instance, the ActiveMQ startup will block waiting
for the lock file "$GERONIMO_HOME/var/activemq/lock" to become available.

Obviously this causes any server instance started after the first server instance is started
to block during startup while waiting for the lock file to become available.

Steps to repeat:

1. Download and unpack G3.0 SNAPSHOT (3.0-20110523 tested)

2. Create the server instances:
-- 2A. cd ${GERONIMO_HOME}
-- 2B-1. mkdir gserver1
-- 2B-2. cp -rp var gserver1/
-- 2B-3. cp -rp etc gserver1/
-- 2B-4. cp -rp repository gserver1/
-- 2C-1. mkdir gserver1
-- 2C-2. cp -rp var gserver1/
-- 2C-3. cp -rp etc gserver1/
-- 2C-4. cp -rp repository gserver1/

-- (the "deploy:new-server-instance" only does step 1 and 2, create base
directory and var/ directory, you still have to manually copy/create etc and

3. update the "PortOffset" parameter in var/config/ in each

4. Start the server instances:
-- env bin/startup
-- env bin/startup

5. `tail -f server2/var/logs/geronimo.log` and you will see this as the last line that outputs:
"2011-05-31 16:26:39,609 WARN  [AMQPersistenceAdapter] Waiting to Lock the Store var/activemq"
The server waits here indefinitely.

6. Shutdown the "server1" instance and you will see the "server2" instance continue on in
the startup procedures.

* When I first start the "server1" instance, the directory "$org.apache.geronimo.home.dir/var/activemq"
is created and populated. Instead it should be "org.apache.geronimo.home.dir/"
that is created and populated.
* Probably the patch should be to reference the ActiveMQ working directory as "org.apache.geronimo.server.dir/var/activemq"
