GlassFish 3.0.1 RHEL 6.3

When trying to start GlassFish I get the following JVM error:

JVM failed to start: com.sun.enterprise.admin.launcher.GFLauncherException: The server exited prematurely with exit code 0.
Before it died, it produced the following output:
Command start-domain failed.

I have plenty of free memory: 3689 MB


As stated in the error message, it's related to domains in glassfish.

  • No domains defined : glassfish won't start
  • Several domains : you need to set domain to use in startup script.
  • from the commmand line I am issuing the following as 'root' --- asadmin start-domain domain1 So I have one domain defined. – tale852150 Sep 18 '14 at 16:41

I had added a new http-listener which was on the same port as another http-listener. I removed the new http-listener from the GlassFish config file domain.xml and rebooted the server and everything came back up.
