As far as I know command statement below is used to create Glassfish service, After execution following command. GlassFish_domain1 file is created under /etc/init.d directory. And link files are created at each directory /etc/rc0.d, /etc/rc1.d ... /etc/rc6.d

asadmin create-service

But when I have restarted the machine on which Glassfish is installed, Glassfish does not start.

Here is the file created GlassFish_domain1


case "$1" in
    $ASADMIN start-domain    --domaindir /root/Downloads/glassfish3/glassfish/domains  domain1 > /dev/null 2>&1 &
    $ASADMIN stop-domain   --domaindir /root/Downloads/glassfish3/glassfish/domains  domain1 > /dev/null 2>&1 &
    $ASADMIN restart-domain   --domaindir /root/Downloads/glassfish3/glassfish/domains  domain1 > /dev/null 2>&1 &
    echo "usage: $0 (start|stop|restart|help)"


   /etc/rc0.d/K20glassfish -> ../init.d/GlassFish_domain1
   /etc/rc1.d/K20glassfish -> ../init.d/GlassFish_domain1
   /etc/rc6.d/K20glassfish -> ../init.d/GlassFish_domain1
   /etc/rc2.d/S20glassfish -> ../init.d/GlassFish_domain1
   /etc/rc3.d/S20glassfish -> ../init.d/GlassFish_domain1
   /etc/rc4.d/S20glassfish -> ../init.d/GlassFish_domain1
   /etc/rc5.d/S20glassfish -> ../init.d/GlassFish_domain1

I have checked it out agin that I am having 127 exit status when glassfish gets run automatically.??

  • What can you find within the log file in /root/Downloads/glassfish3/glassfish/domains/domain1/log/server.log ? – patricks Jan 9 '13 at 7:01
  • There is nothing. I think something does not allow execution. – Ahmet Karakaya Jan 9 '13 at 7:09
  • if you start /etc/init.d/GlassFish_domain1 all works fine? – patricks Jan 9 '13 at 7:10
  • yes if I execute "/etc/init.d/GlassFish_domain1 start" manually all work fine. – Ahmet Karakaya Jan 9 '13 at 7:23
  • UPDATED question. I am having 127 exist status somehow. – Ahmet Karakaya Jan 9 '13 at 7:48

I have found out the problem. JAVA_HOME has to be set and JAVA_HOME/bin has to be inserted in to PATH in script under /etc/rcX.d X is the runlevel index number. Actually I did same setting in "/root/.profile" but perhaps before execution of ".profile" scripts under /etc/rcX.d run.
