I'm new to Open Xchange and trying to install it on a clean Debian 10.7 VM by following the official installation instructions.

I installed MariaDB on the same server, gave the root user a password (root_db_pass #example), created a new database (open_xchange) and a user (open_xchange_user) with password (ox_db_pass #example).

Followed all steps from the installation instructions which works fine until i need to register the local server at he Open-Xchange configdb database (/opt/open-xchange/sbin/registerserver -n oxserver -A oxadminmaster -P admin_master_password), then i receive the error

root@axx-oxch-srv01:~# /opt/open-xchange/sbin/registerserver -n oxserver -A oxadminmaster -P admin_master_password

server could not be registered:
Server response:
 Look-up failed. Service "OXUtil_V2" is not available.

I Googled this issue but there is almost nothing to find about this. I checked the passwords 3 times to be sure i did not make a typo! How can i fix this ?


Some extra info which may be required to help me out

used initconfigdb command

/opt/open-xchange/sbin/initconfigdb --configdb-dbname open_xchange --configdb-user open_xchange_user --configdb-pass ox_db_pass --mysql-root-passwd root_db_pass 

used oxinstaller command

/opt/open-xchange/sbin/oxinstaller --no-license --servername=oxserver --configdb-pass=ox_db_pass --master-pass=admin_master_password --network-listener-host=localhost --servermemory 1024

If more data is needed, let me know an i will update my question...


UPDATE 1

I just found that there is also logged something which differs from the message i get in the console. The log entries bellow pop up after i the service open-xchange restart which is required after executing /opt/open-xchange/sbin/oxinstaller --no-license --servername=oxserver

Note this line: Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: Access denied for user 'openexchange'@'localhost' (using password: YES). This is interesting as openexchange@localhost is not the user i give during the initconfigdb command and also not corresponds with the database user i created in MariaDB.

I tried to create such user with the same password as the user i created and executed everything again but unfortunately this results in the same error. I have no idea where Open Xchange gets this user from...???

I found out that the default username is used in the error, described in update 1. This because the parameter --configdb-username=open_xchange_user is missing in the oxinstaller command.

This also made me thing that the --configdb-database=open_xchange is probably required as well.

I also added the parameter --configdb-writehost=localhost to the oxinstaller command as this seems to be required as well if you only use 1 database server instead of a cluster. (see https://oxpedia.org/wiki/index.php?title=OXLoadBalancingClustering_Database#Configure_OX_to_use_with_a_standalone_database)

So my updated oxinstaller command looks like this:

/opt/open-xchange/sbin/oxinstaller --no-license --servername=oxserver --configdb-server=open_xchange --configdb-user=open_xchange_user --configdb-pass=ox_db_pass --configdb-writehost=localhost --master-pass=admin_master_password --network-listener-host=localhost --servermemory 1024

After this everything works fine.
